I recall the time when I went
to see "The War of the Worlds" along with my dad and
I was about ten years old at the time and an easily impressionable
My dad warned me: "According to me this will scare you!"
I didn't listen. There are few things in life that attract me
more than science fiction and horror films. It ended up that
I had to walk out before the middle of the movie, due to the
fact that the terrible potato-shaped aliens had scared the daylights
out of me. Since then quite a few years have passed; today, fortunately
I'm not as impressionable as then and science fiction continues
to be one of my preferred movie categories.
I really can not put my finger on why i like so much the sci-fi
movies produced in the fifties. I hope to please everyone who
shares the same passion for such movies by providing, above all,
photographic material related to those fantastic films.
It's not that I have the pretense of developing an extensive
archive regarding fifties sci-fi films, but in a modest way I
have simply gathered material about the films that for one reason
or the other have impressed me in a particular way.
A lot of these images have been captured from video source and
edited by me, which are emphasized by way of the "dd"
indicative, while the rest I found on the web or in books. Where
possible I have indicated the source, while in the cases where
I did not know or remember I did not indicate such (I invite
those interested to correct me to do so in such cases).
The same applies to the textual material exposed. Be it by way
of the web, or through books, I have indicated title and author.
I hope to be able to add other films in the future, but for now
enjoy the site visit.
To all a cordial KLAATU BARADA NIKTO
