Actually, the message of I Married a Monster from Outer Space is that you can't trust men. I think many of my readers can relate. It's a proto-feminist film, actually. Seriously.
Like Earth men, these aliens just want to get into your panties to do their dirty deed. I say: as long as they are big and stupid.
Of course, aliens only want to have fun ~ and bring their spawn to this planet, damn it!
The film stars B movie queen star of the '50s, Gloria Talbott, who started in cinema as a child. The late Tom Tryon plays her alien hubba-hubba-hubby. If you look at him in human form, face it, you could do a lot worse. The physically gorgeous and talented actor (Otto Preminger's fabulous The Cardinal) grew weary of Hollywood and went on to become a best-selling author. His novel, The Other, was turned into a hit motion picture.
In a variation on Invasion of the Body Snatchers, another '60s classic of its genre, the creatures take over human beings, assuming their identities. Both film reflect the paranoia of the time about Communism.
Officer, help! There's a monster in my bed!
Definitely watch this on video. Or you can watch the whole thing on YouTtube:
