This Island Earth Metaluna Mutant mask on display...

In 1955 This Island Earth was one of the first major science fiction films to be made in Technicolor and at the time was critically praised for its special effects, great script and dazzling colour.

Bud Westmore and the Universal make-up department created two alien designs for consideration by the studio executives for the 1953 movie It Came from Outer Space.

Apparently the design that was rejected was saved and later used as the 'Mutant' in Universal's sci-fi extravaganza This Island Earth.

  1. Best 50's sci-fi movie of all time.

  2. Great movie with nice effects and superb colour. Highly recommend It Came From Outer Space and Earth Verses The Flying Saucers.
