    WOW! what a blast to go back to the basement where it could have 10 million years ago or the surface of the moon, or mars. I remember the creatures. If you say it’s 1962 I wouldn’t remember you making the movie, but I definately remember the lizzard. I want more, I want more, I want more!

    Brother Bob, the yellow Martian lizard probably survived for a few years, long enough for you to remember him. But I could be off on the date. Glad you liked this, the sound really helps, more to come.

    Hi Michael,
    This is great. I definitely remember it, love the sound effects. I was always fascinated by the stuff you put together.

    G! That’s so funny and wonderful. And how great that you were only 14 or 15…This is very smart, creative, and fun. And I’m sure it must have taken forever to build and film. You should submit this to some websites, like Boing Boing.

    I also so much appreciate your use of a theremin – a perfect choice for retro sci-fi…

    The "Mutal of Mars" moniker cracks me up…Actually, Marlin Perkins got busted, I believe, for tying-up/staging animals to get some of his footage. Not cool…

    Anyway, I much enjoyed this. I’ll watch it again at home, since my monitor at work is not the best. Cheers!!

    Awww, sorry to burst your childhood memory-bubble…

    It is really messed-up, some of the things he is said to have done. If you want to read an article about it, here’s one: findarticles.com/p/articles/mi_m1594/is_n3_v8/ai_19998020

    Otherwise, forget I ever told you. It’s not like he’s around anymore…The good news is that there’s a lot more vigilance in the nature filmmaking community regarding such matters. It’s not something any respectable filmmaker would ever want to have on her/his record…
