Tom Tryon, Forgotten Author & Alien Sex God
Well, I had eye surgery yesterday; the first step that I hope eventually restores my sight enough to work easily. I’m writing a longer piece on film and London for tomorrow, hopefully, but meanwhile here’s something else from the vaults. Like many old movies, this one has grown more interesting with hindsight. It’s a 50s science fiction B-movie, good enough to give it cult status, and a lot more fun when you know that the leading man, who became one of my ‘Forgotten Authors’ after the film he was making with Marilyn Monroe was halted by her death, lived with a male porn star.
Given the premise of the film – what will happen when a young bride discovers that she’s accidentally married…an alien freak! – it’s hard not to see this trailer in another light entirely.
