Pulp Screen: "The Man From Planet X", 1951

Pulp Screen
Hello Pulp friends,

I am probably going to tribute some more classic sci-fi movies so I guess that turns December in Pulp Sci-Fi month ;)

The original movie posters were announcing "the weirdest Visitor the Earth has ever seen". I am not sure if this is the weirdest, but it sure is the coolest in that Wally Wood kinda way :)
From 1951, directed by Edgar G. Ulmer and with Robert Clarke, Margaret Field, Raymond Bond, I give you "The Man From Planet X"!
Once agai, click on the sepia image for the full Technicolor image ;)

Enjoy! :)

Cheers,
Francesco

Oh i've never heard of this one, but it looks interesting. I'll try to check it out.

Great picture tho. I really love the lighting effect you used for the faces... eerie.

I think Ray Bradbury scripted this flick?

I'm noticing a special ability to infuse what might have look clunky onscreen with a great reality in your art.

Meaning, the way those filmmakers envisioned how their special effects in those movies would look is how you draw them, FF.

Francesco, that is some cool! I have been digging the sci-fi theme and am so glad you're still rolling with it. You're amazing!
