Trivia: Born in 1908, entertainment attorney SAMUEL Z. ARKOFF was hired in 1954 at American International Pictures (AIP), originally American Releasing Corporation, founded by JAMES H. NICHOLSON and with one director on staff...ROGER CORMAN. Arkoff was pleased how Corman could complete a film on time and under budget, ready for the drive-ins and the teenager market he felt the big name studios were neglecting. (They a big way!). Each little film made money, and all three men put the profits into the next pictures. (Corman frequently used some of his profits to produce his own films independently of AIP). In 1955, AIP released one film, The Beast With A Million Eyes. In 1956, AIP released 10 movies, many of them Corman's. 1957 saw 13 films, 1958 had 22...and pal Jim Nicholson would be the one responsible for making up most of the unusual and catchy titles. The title and poster would be the first things done for a possible AIP film. If they sounded and looked good, the script and casting was next, etc. Besides Corman, Arkoff gave other directors their first access to film distribution and financing, including BERT I. GORDON, and under AIP's logo, released not only 309-THE AMAZING COLOSSAL MAN, but also its sequel, 319-WAR OF THE COLOSSAL BEAST. After some 500 movies, Arkoff still has interest in the film world. You can read more about his amazing life story in his autobiography, "Flying Through Hollywood by the Seat of My Pants."

ALBERT GLASSER, described by Tom Servo as "the man who holds you down and pummels you with music," was one of Hollywood's most prolific movie score composers. Of the some 200 movies he scored, 11 were MSTed: 201-ROCKETSHIP X-M (arrangement only); 309-THE AMAZING COLOSSAL MAN; 313-EARTH VS. THE SPIDER; 315-TEENAGE CAVEMAN; 317-VIKING WOMEN AND THE SEA SERPENT; 319-WAR OF THE COLOSSAL BEAST; 409-THE INDESTRUCTIBLE MAN; 414-TORMENTED; 517-BEGINNING OF THE END; 602-INVASION USA; and 611-LAST OF THE WILD HORSES. Some other cheesy movies which he scored are: Gordon's The Cyclops and Attack of the Puppet People; and The Giant from the Unknown.

RUSS BENDER, who plays Richard Kingman here, also appears as Dr. Carmichael in 319-WAR OF THE COLOSSAL BEAST; and dodged bat thingies as General Patrick in 311-IT CONQUERED THE WORLD. You can see him in several turkeys including Dragstrip Girl; The Ghost of Dragstrip Hollow; and Invasion of the Saucer Men.

Wrinkled HANK PATTERSON, best known for his portrayal of Fred Ziffel on TV's Green Acres, made a career of playing moonshine-addled hillbillies, as he does here as Henry, and as Dave in 517-BEGINNING OF THE END. He was also memorable as janitor Hugo in 313-EARTH VS. THE SPIDER. Besides many Westerns, Patterson's other films include: 1955's Tarantula; 1958's Attack of the Puppet People; and Monster on the Campus.
