The Angry Red Planet (1959) Our first manned flight to Mars returns after being thought lost in space. Only two survivors (Mohr & Hayden) of the original four are on board. Mohr has a green growth on his arm, and nothing that the doctors do will kill it. Hayden, under hypnosis, tells of their adventures on Mars. Thought to be a dead planet, it's inhabited with man-eating plants, giant Bat-Rat-Spider-Crab monsters, a strange city on a lake, and a one-eyed monster that dissolves anything that it swallows or touches.

Movie Quote(s):
  • Martian Voice: Men of Earth, we of the planet Mars give you this warning. Listen carefully and remember. We have known your planet Earth since the first creature crawled out of the primeval slime of your seas to become man. For millennia, we have followed your progress, for centuries, we have watched you, listened to your radio signals and learned your speech and your culture. And now, you have invaded our home. Technological adults, but spiritual and emotional infants. We kept you here deciding your fate. Had the lower forms of life of our planet destroyed you, we would not have interfered. But you survived. Your civilization has not progressed beyond destruction, war and violence against yourselves and others. Do as you will to your own and to your planet, but remember this warning - Do Not Return To Mars. You will be permitted to leave for this sole purpose - Carry The Warning To Earth. Do Not Come Here. We can and will destroy you, all life on your planet, if you do not heed us. You have seen us, been permitted to glimpse our world. Go now. Warn mankind not to return unbidden.
  • Maj. Gen. George Treegar: The hell with radiation. Let's go.
  • Dr. Iris 'Irish' Ryan: I know you think I acted like a hysterical female there back at the ship, but I can assure you I'm perfectly capable of taking care of myself!
  • CWO Sam Jacobs: You know, I can't say that I recommend spacesuits for beautiful young dolls. What happened to all your curves?
  • Col. Thomas O'Bannion: Pretty soon people will be just as sure of space ravel as I was of my dog... as I'd like to be of you.
Movie Trivia:
  • Director Ib Melchior was given just 9 days to shoot the film, on a budget of $200,000.
  • The 40-foot alien monster was actually a marionette about 15 inches high. It was essentially a combination of a rat, bat, spider, and crab.
  • The alien monster is the same one featured on the cover of the album "Walk Among Us" (1982) by The Misfits.
  • The "Cinemagic" process, used for all scenes on the surface of Mars, was the result of an attempt by producer Norman Maurer to turn live-action footage directly into hand-drawn animation - or to simulate that. This would enable hand-drawn backgrounds to look as real (or as unreal) as the live action footage. It didn't have that effect here, of course. See The Three Stooges in Orbit (1962) for Maurer's second (and failed) attempt at the same process.
