Nothing like a cheesy 1950s sci-fi movie on a cold autumn evening. Yes folks, it’s still only autumn here in Western New York! Last night on TCM it was 1958’s The Attack of the 50-Foot Woman. In this scene, the “very clean even though it’s been driving down a dirt road” 1958 Plymouth Sport Suburban is about to be picked up and tossed by a giant man from the nearby space ship; when it hits the ground it miraculously turns into a 1949 Chevy Styline Deluxe (below). Guess the producers (and perhaps the car’s real owner, the Chrysler Corporation) just weren’t up to destroying a brand new car. Cheapskates.
