Cheapest Movie Set Ever? Cockpit Scene From "Plan 9 From Outer Space" (1959) (video)

In Tim Burton's "Ed Wood" (1994), the actor hired to play an airline pilot is dismayed by the sparse cockpit set.

In the actual film "Plan 9 From Outer Space", we find this to be no exaggeration.

Gregory Walcott (right) and co-pilot are sitting on chairs in front of a blank wall.

There appears to be a shower curtain hanging over the doorway.

Not sure what that is they're "steering" with.

Listen to those chairs creak.

It's an impressionistic set, to say the least.

Walcott, bless his heart, went on to have a fairly successful acting career.

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
