The science fiction boom of the 1950s gave us plenty of new monsters, but few are as instantly recognizable as the Metaluna Mutant, whose bug eyes and pincers made the 1955 adventure This Island Earth unforgettable. This Ultimate Guide magazine highlighting this beloved motion picture celebrates the wonder and excitement that make it such a popular choice.
The rich, full-color design of this guide evokes the Technicolor sequences that made the movie such a spectacle. In-depth articles look at the movie's production and legacy, while plentiful biographies provide an insight into the cast and crew who brought the story to the screen. While directors Joseph M. Newman and Jack Arnold took the helm, stars Jeff Morrow, Faith Domergue, and Rex Reason made for compelling leads in a story of space warfare, thought control, and some of the wackiest gadgetry moviegoers had ever seen.
