Trivia

Paul Birch walked off the film before shooting was completed after having a physical confrontation with Roger Corman. He was quoted as saying, " I am an actor, and I don't need this stuff... To hell with it all! Goodbye!" According to co-star Beverly Garland, Birch objected to the fast pace of the film, the old-fashioned, uncomfortable hard plastic contacts he had to wear, and the film's low-budget, which he considered beneath his status. As a result, Birch's remaining scenes were shot with Lyle Latell doubling for Birch. See more »

Fast moving, wild Corman classic
16 November 1998 | by (Seattle, WA) – See all my reviews

One of Corman's very best is this 1957 gem which originally was double billed with the enjoyable Attack of the Crab Monster. Paul Birch is the blank eyed vampire from another planet who wears cool wrap-around shades and dressed in a black business suit. Carpenter drew inspiration from here for They Live. He sends specimens of humans to his planet for further study like vacuum cleaner Dick Miller, hires a suspicious chauffeur (Jonathan Haze--who is remembered best from Little Shop of Horrors), hires an unsuspecting nurse (beverly garland)to give him blood transfusions, and still has time to play around as a flying head crushing bat creature. The special effects are courtesy of the very talented Paul Blaisdell (She Creature, Saucer Men and more). It's been remade a few times.. but nothing comes close to the original. Campy fun!! Highly recommended. And only a little over an hour long.
