Amazing what sort of damage can be done by large pie plates.

That's Hugh Marlowe with Joan Taylor in the 1956 ripped-from-the-headlines classic, "Earth vs. the Flying Saucers", directed by Fred F. Sears, with animation by the great Ray Harryhausen. Released through Columbia Pictures.

Ray Harryhausen wasn't exactly fond of this film, probably because it had no creatures, just flying saucers rampaging Washington D.C..

Someone out there may think that the name of "Mr. Marshall" reeks of mediocrity...

Have you ever seen Marlowe in All About Eve, The Day The Earth Stood Still, Twelve O'Clock High, Birdman Of Alcatraz, or Elmer Gantry?

He was a fine actor, worthy of respect.

Great movie, acting by Marlowe, effects, etc. I always pitied those aliens. What if you had an itch while wearing those suits?
THe main issue I had with the effects was why did their weapons sometimes vaporize targets and other times cause them to explode?

In the lab scene with the helmet, they say "it's resisted everything we tried on it", and yet ordinary rifles take down the alien. So...what....did they make the helmet indestructible and not the body armor? wink

Among the absurdities of this movie is the beginning in which the rocket scientist and his assistant/wife are driving to a rocket launch when they are buzzed by a giant UFO. They continue to the missile base and attempt to launch the rocket----even though they were buzzed by the UFO. The wife's father, a general, calls and they don't even mention the UFO to him to ask if the military's radar detected the UFO or perhaps he should scramble jet fighters to look for it. Later, they all get together for dinner-----and then they casually tell the general about the giant UFO.

Excellent point!
It woulda been cool if someone had taken one of the unis from a dead alien, donned it and used its weapons against the flying saucers.
I have to say they really had some great sound effects in this film.

for all you Marlowe fans i heartily recommend the commentary track from DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL by Robert Wise & Nick Meyer
If all the good actors weren't off fighting the Nazis a hugh marlowe could have never had a Hollywood "career"!


have a nice day!

Bruce, please. I consider Hugh Marlowe as one of the 50s stalwarts of scifi and he did some decent enough roles. His bit in WORLD WITHOUT END especially.

I've got the Blu-ray of THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL and on the commentary, Nicholas Meyer is very negative about Hugh Marlowe's acting in the movie.
I also have the dvd of SEVEN DAYS IN MAY in which Marlowe co-starred in a great cast.

I thought Marlowe did "upstanding citizen" and "male authority figure" well. And with that awesome head of hair and manly jawline, almost nobody looked better in a tux.

But anything more subtle and I got the giggles. Check him out in NIGHT AND THE CITY to see what I mean.

i never thought i would read Marlowe described as "manly"
just check out his wide waist and fat ass (not to mention that simpering voice)
