John Carradine and Jesse White
30 August 2011 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

LAND OF THE GIANTS followed in the wake of VOYAGE TO THE BOTTOM OF THE SEA, LOST IN SPACE, and TIME TUNNEL, all 60s fantasy adventures from producer Irwin Allen. A second season episode, "Comeback" guest stars the legendary John Carradine in the role of Egor Crull, "broken down, washed up has-been-who-never-was," a once famous horror actor and star of the masterpiece "The Crime of Dr. Death." Not having worked in ten years, despondent, and on the brink of suicide, he finds four of the little people and figures they can help him regain his former glory in a new production, "The Dance of the Devil Dolls." The only studio willing to take him on is bottom-of-the-barrel Manfred Studios, run by Manfred (Jesse White), who would prefer to see dollar signs rather than creditors, keeping a gorilla named Baby (Janos Prohaska) on hand as an extra when not poking at it with a club. The basic set up allows Manfred to invent dangerous stunts for his tiny stars to perform as they bide their time hatching an escape plan. Fritz Feld, like Carradine a veteran of LOST IN SPACE, appears as Manfred's trusted assistant, and Janos Prohaska wears what appears to be the same suit (different color) he used as The Mugato in STAR TREK's "A Private Little War." Ever the trouper, John Carradine was getting used to being cast as washed up actors, and delivers an appropriate line at one point: "when one is starting back up the ladder, it might as well be at the bottom rung."
