Pulp Screen: "Phantom From Space", 1953

Pulp Screen
Hello Pulp friends,

Hope everyone is enjoying these Holidays :)

Before gettin' to the Holiday SPecial part 2 for the last of year (tune in as it's also the 100 post in Pulp Sunday, so it should be big, I hope ;)), here's another tribute to a less known Sci-Fi classic, here in its Italian dress (which I took as inspiration).
Directed by W. Lee Wilder, "Phantom From Space", from 1953.
Happy Sunday everyone :)

Cheers,
Francesco

Thank you, Chad :) Actually I hope I keep improving my skills: if you stop learning, then it means you are at the end ;)
HA! Well, Bill, I have never been called that way, by if it's a compliment, I think I can take it from you for a week or two ;) Thanks, man :)
Grazie, Fede :D Is it because of the subject/composition or because it's in Italian? ;)
30s, 40s, 50s: thay are part of my love for the classics :D (even if I would like to tribute some later Hammer movies too). Thank you, Ilia :) I also need to find a way to go back tot he radio shows...

Francesco
