    Man! I was searching for the classic stuff all over Hulu and Netflix but they don't have em! I thought public domain would have been the easiest things to add but i'm glad I can watch these here! Cinemassacre really inspired me to watch the older stuff. Important and historical movies for film buffs

    This movie was made 4 years before I was born in 1955. I didn't realize my favorite actor from Gunsmoke, James Arness, was the Thing. George Fenneman, (actor in the black sweater with stripes 15:00) said in an interview on the 'Tomorrow Show with Tom Snyder' he would not ever be an actor ever again after making this movie.
