Bizarre Opening Scene in "The Beast of Yucca Flats" (1961) (video)

In Coleman Francis' no-budget 1961 thriller "Beast of Yucca Flats"...

...Tor Johnson plays a nuclear physicist. (Yes, you read that right.)

Until an A-Bomb blast turns him into a mindless, homicidal psycho wandering the desert.

For the most part,  it's your typical PG-rated monster movie.  You could watch it with your kids.
Despite Tor having a somewhat questionable interest in one of his victims.

But none of that compares to the totally weird opening scene.

First, there's the brief "nipple slip." In 1961, no less.
The girl wears loafers right out of the shower. 
And has a very loud clock.

The scene is obviously meant as a preview...
...yet at no time during the movie does Tor go near anyone's house.

This is where it gets really weird...

(Read our review of the movie HERE.)

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

You can clearly see the black leg of a grip stand on the left side of her bedroom.
