Strange things in 50s and 60s sci-fi movies

This is a topic on any strange things that appear in old sci-fi movies. If you notice something in any movies please share it.   

You seem to be a fan of sci-fi flicks. Have you read Bill Warren's Keep Watching the Skies? I highly recommend the two volumes.

No offense but Bill Warren is very inaccurate about some things in his books. They might be enjoyable to read but I would not rely on them being correct factually a lot of times.

Ya know, it's funny you mentioned this, Rip.

'Cause a lot of people think his cousin Earl's commission report has the same problem too! ;)

(...sorry...couldn't resist)

man, I'd like to think there is missing footage from Attack of the 50 Foot Woman and we really see her get a real good grip on Harry.

I'd like to see Harry crawl up into her hairy. Looks like he'd fit.

I'll go with the cockpit of the plane in "Plan 9 from Outer Space" being covered by a shower curtain as being a bit strange.

Yeah, to say nothin' about the rather strange lack of instrumentation on that "aircraft", eh CG?!...

Okay, I THINK I have one here.

Now folks. Take a look at Gort's visor here...

And now is it only ME, or does that say "Ray-Ban®" in teeny-tiny little script over there on the left of where he's shootin' out that laser beam of light???

(...betcha never noticed THAT before, did ya!)

;)

No offense taken. I've spotted some goofs in these tomes myself, but I do find them handy and enjoyable to read along with whatever film I happen to be watching.

An example of alien mathematics from Killers From Space:

Loosely translated, this says "A spaceship leaves Astron Delta at noon traveling at warp 7. Two hours later, another spaceship ..."

Ever wonder if alien kids hate algebraic word problems as much as earth kids do, Rich?

(...well, THIS earth kid sure as hell did anyway)
