The special eye effects for Steve March were created by having John Agar wear special black contact lenses that were very thick. The extreme thickness of the contact made it painful for Agar to wear them. See more »

Checks out alright. I don't understand it. Hey, Dan, it doesn't make any sense.
I said it doesn't make any sense. The Geiger counter's been going on and off all morning. And the nucleometer checks right along with it.

"The Brain From Planet Arous" is one of the best 50's sci-fi films of that genre. In the 60's and 70's it was on WOR, or WPIX TV about twice a month. If you are a fan of this film, you should absolutely buy the DVD. It's part of the Wade Williams Collection, and put out by Image Entertainment. The DVD transfer is excellent! One of the better things about this film, is that it is in B & W, not color. John Agars' performance is the ultimate campy overacting, but it fits in just great! There is a small, but good part played by a very young Robert Fuller in the beginning. This film rates up along with another from that time period. "Attack Of The Crab Monsters!" email@example.com
