When Worlds Collide is being shown as part of presentations to recognize Barbara Rush.   Preceded at 8:00 PM, 09/24 by It Came From Outer Space.  I recall having seen When Worlds Collide, but she is better in Outer Space.  Sort of plays two roles.

Must have seen When Worlds Collide on TCM because it is not on one of my SciFy DVD sets.  Not really impressed with it as I recall.  It Came From Outer Space is a better movie in my opinion.

The major takeaway message in When Worlds Collide that I get is: Have skills absolutely and strictly essential for starting a civilization.

WANTED: Scientists, engineers, architects, construction workers, electricians, mechanics, medical professionals, dentists, educators, farmers, gardeners, chefs, and cooks; tailors, seamstresses, cobblers -- and of course, courtesans, concubines, and harlots (all work and no play, don't 'cha know!).

PREPARE TO KISS BELLUS "HELLO!" (and your useless posterior "Good-bye!"): Politicians, lawyers, bankers, brokers, and financial advisors; artists, poets, actors, musicians, singers, and dancers -- entertainers in general; professional athletes and personal trainers (except those who can be used as laborers);  professional critics, reviewers, and commentators; marketers, advertisers, insurance salesmen, and clergy; fashion designers and fashionistas; "influencers," celebrities, royals . . . and Madonna.

I think "It Came" has been shown on Svengoolie, where I enjoyed seeing it. It's not perfect, but it's maybe a cut above similar flicks of the era. Sven jokingly pointed out how Barbara screams quite a bit--when a boy in a space suit knocks on her door, for instance.  She kind of yells when she screams. It's pretty funny!

No doubt; me too.  In fact, when it came on TV it was almost an event movie broadcast.  Back in the days of 7 channels and UHF spinning (so bored)...

SEVEN channels?  I remember seeing it on a late, late show presentation back when there were only THREE channels(four in Detroit due to proximity to Ontario, Canada)  and two UHF channels.  "Round here anyway.

forgive me, i know this is bad of me, but i started watching WHEN WORLDS COLLIDE this morning, but I just wasn't quite into it and also it was giving me DONT LOOK UP flashbacks, so I turned it off.

i'm not really in the mood for the end of the world right now, more in the mood for dog training/jello recipes on youtube.

forgiveness.

When in junior high school, we had two channels - one CBS and one splitting between ABC and NBC.  Then there were three channels.  No UHF and not sure when PBS came in.
