Zurbano Films
Jose Antonio Nieves-Conde

James Philbrook, Ingrid Pitt, Arturo Fernandez, Soledad Miranda, Jose Bodalo

A giant invisible dinosaur is accidentally released by a group of treasure hunters in the Greek mountains, saving the producers a fortune in special effects. I'd rather look at Ingrid anyway…

Bad weather forces a helicopter containing three people to set down on an uncharted island where a Nazi scientist is transforming microscopic marine life into flesh-eating creatures.

Not dissimilar theme to the 1960 film 'The Time Machine' but more complex. Scientists find themselves in a time trap after using a device to travel 107 years into the future.


El Asesino Invisible
(Man In The Golden Mask vs The Invisible Assassin)
Filmadora Panamericana
Rene Cardona


Guillermo Murray, Adriana Roel, Ana Bertha Lepe, Carlos Agosti, Jorge Rivero
Miguel Arenas, Karloff Lagarde, Los Sinners

We've had black and silver-masked wrestling superheroes, now meet a gold-masked one! A scientist and his daughter's lover jointly invent a machine that makes people invisible that they demonstrate to the gold-masked hero. The scientist is murdered shortly afterwards and the machine, together with a young laboratory assistant, disappears ( ha ha ), following which there are a number of inexplicable bank robberies. The effects of the machine are only temporary, however, and it is this which leads to the discovery that the bank robberies are being carried out by the missing boy and the girl's lover.

 
Kiss Me Quick!
(Dr. Breedlove)

Fantasy Productions
Russ Meyer


Jackie De Witt, Fred Coe, Althea Currier, Claudia Banks

The titles may give you a clue to this one! A semi-porn semi-comedy film which involves an alien called Sterilox (sounds more like a denture fixative) who comes to Earth in search of females as the women on his home planet are sterile. He first falls in love with a vending machine after which he encounters Dr. Breedlove, whose forte seems to be the manufacture of artificial women (although he apparently produces the odd Frankenstein-like monster in his spare time). Sterilox likes what he sees and takes one of the constructs home with him.




Goldfinger
Based on the novel by Ian Fleming
Eon Productions / United Artists

Guy Hamilton


Sean Connery, Honor Blackman, Shirley Eaton, Tania Mallet, Nadja Regin, Lois Maxwell
Bernard Lee, Desmond Llewellyn, Gert Frobe, Harold Sakata, Martin Benson, Cec Linder
Austin Willis, Bill Nagy, Alf Joint, Varley Thomas, Raymond Young, Richard Vernon
Denis Cowles, Michael Mellinger, Bert Kwouk, Hal Galili, Lenny Rabin

Auric Goldfinger, who has a passion for gold, plans to raid America's Fort Knox gold reserves by using a team of typically gorgeous female stunt fliers, led by hay-loving Pussy Galore, to spray the area with poison gas before cutting into the facility using an industrial laser which Bond has already seen at quarters a bit too close for comfort. Goldfinger meets his fitting end in a chilling manner during his 'escape' when he is sucked out of the window of a jet plane after the cabin depressurises. Which just leaves a contrite Pussy Galore for him to deal with in his usual manner.

Firelight
Self-produced by Steven Spielberg
Steven Spielberg

Robert Robyn, Beth Weber, Lucky Lohr, Margaret Peyou, Chuck Case, Charles Emery
Tina Lanser, Warner Marshall, Sherry Nalder, Carolyn Owen, Chip Parker, Haven Peters
Deedee Pisani, Nancy Spielberg

Written and directed by Steven Spielberg at the age of 17 on a $500 budget. A group of scientists investigate a series of coloured lights in the sky, followed by the inexplicable disappearance of people, animals and things from the town of Freeport, Arizona. Among those kidnapped by the Aliens are a dog, a unit of soldiers and young girl named Lisa, whose abduction induces a heart attack in her mother.

The Aliens' plan is to transport Freeport to their home planet, Altaris, and create a human zoo. The film has sub-plots involving marital discord between scientist Tony Karcher and his wife Debbie and the determination of Howard Richards to convince the CIA that alien life does not exist.

The Flying Saucer

Dino De Laurentiis Cinematografica
Tinto Brass


Alberto Sordi, Monica Vitti, Silvano Mangano, Eleonora Rossi Drago, Guido Celano

I hope they threw away the key . . .
 
Kisses For My President
(Kisses For The President)

Pearlayne / Warner Brothers
Curtis Bernhardt


Polly Bergen, Fred MacMurray, Arlene Dahl, Eli Wallach, Edward Andrews, Donald May

I'm not quite sure whether this belongs here but as it was set at some future time and is still relevant I suppose it qualifies. Fred brings his gentle charm to the role as he plays 'first lady' to a macho female President of the U.S.A. and her dealings with a visiting dictator whose morals are somewhat suspect when it comes to the female gender.


Sky Above Heaven
(Le Ciel Sur La Tete) (Stade Zero) (Skies Above) (Sky Beyond Heaven)

Gaumont / Galatea
Yves Ciampi


Andre Smagghe, Jacques Monod, Marcel Bozuffi, Yves Brainville, Guy Trejean, Henri Piegay
Bernard Fresson, Beatrice Cenci

A radioactive satellite of unknown origin appears in orbit over the U.S.A. leading to all sorts of suspicions and accusations bordering on nuclear war. Doomsday is avoided when the U.S.A. and Russia join forces to investigate and destroy the satellite, but before they can get the job done the thing disappears as mysteriously as it arrived. There was a large involvement of the French armed forces in the making of the film including the use of its aircraft carrier Clemenceau for many of the scenes.

 

The First Men In The Moon
Columbia / Ameran
Nathan Juran

Edward Judd, Lionel Jeffries, Martha Hyer

An eccentric professor discovers an anti-gravity compound which, when pasted onto his home-made spaceship constructed of old railway bits, allows him and his companions to travel to the moon. They are captured by an underground race of ant-like Selenites from which they eventually manage to escape, but leaving the professor behind, whose common cold germs eventually wipe them out. It is told as a flashback story by an old man in a nursing home watching the televised discovery of the extinct Selenite city by a modern day lunar mission.
Special effects are by Ray Harryhausen.

The Creeping Terror
(Dangerous Charter) (The Crawling Monster)
Metropolitan International Pictures
Art J. Nelson

Art J. Nelson, Shannon O'Neill, William Thourlby, John Caresio, Brendon Boone
Byrd Holland, Jack King, Pierre Kopp, Ken Savage, Mark Field, Les LaMarr, Mary Price
Louise Lawson, Myra Lee, Buddy Mize

Filmed at Lake Tahoe, a prime candidate for the worst sci-fi (or possibly any kind of) film of all time. A man-eating carpet terrorises a town, sucking conveniently unmoving people into itself. It is finally killed by being run into with a car. They should have just hoovered it and polished it off with a dose of shake'n'vac. Apparently the film is narrated because the director knocked the sound equipment into the lake during a scene and couldn't afford to replace it so overdubbed the narrative himself during post-production.

Monstrosity
(The Atomic Brain)
Cinema Venture
Joseph V. Mascelli

Frank Gerstle, Erika Peters, Frank Fowler, Judy Bamber, Marjorie Eaton, Margie Fisco
Lisa Lang, Xerxes the cat

A doctor who has harnessed atomic power into a machine that can transplant brains is engaged by a rich matron to endow her with the body of a sexy young woman. For this purpose she also takes on a couple of gorgeous housekeepers and sets him up in a lab where the machine itself seems to require a mainly-naked young lady ( Margie Fisco ) being hooked up to it in order for it to work. A test experiment results in the brain of a cat being transplanted into one of the young ladies (Lisa Lang). Fortunately, it didn't affect her work - but they had to get a bigger cat flap fitted. The movie is narrated by Bradford Dillman.
