Day #22,304

Walk km 12,667-12,675: Stanley Park

Movie #2194: Escape From L.A. (1996, John Carpenter)

Comic book level action featuring the return of Snake Plisskin. The FX looks kinda iffy for a 50 million dollar budget flick. However, it's all meant to be a big joke and it works well at that level.

Movie #2195: Attack Of The 50 Foot Woman (1958, Nathan Juran)

Allison Hayes gives an electifying performance

This is it. I keep watching those crappy 50s SiFi movies in the hope of seeing something like this. A movie that actually lives up to its lurid title. Allison Hayes is great as the 50 foot woman. Solid direction by Nathan Juran. The Special FX are pretty crappy until they bring on the miniatures for the finale. A great movie.
A loved the plot line for the idiotic Harry: he's married to Allison Hayes (the sexiest woman ever to grace the silver screen) but prefers Yvette Vickers? After he sees the alien from outer space he continues right along trying to get rid of Allison so he can have Yvette. Aliens? Who cares about aliens!
