College Knowledge
16 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one isn't a wonderful golden turkey; it's just a dim low-budget turkey shot on a beach and a couple of indoor sets. It does have one wonderful line of dialogue, though -- Prof. King to Ted Baxter, as the web of suspicion grows around the (mostly unseen) oceanography institute: "Do you think that that knowledge came from my college?" Ed Wood could have written that line. Delirious. It's also fun, when watching this kind of movie, to imagine where it played in '55 and how its original audience reacted. It think it was a co-feature at drive-ins, but just picture this gray, thrill-deprived pic playing at some old nabe with dowdy carpeting and old theater chairs, to a discontented teenage audience who would've found out in 10-15 minutes just what their 50 cents had bought.
