All The Cucumber Creature Scenes From "It Conquered The World" (1956) (video)

Roger Corman's low-budget classic about a Venusian invader was shot in ten days.
It stars Peter Graves, Beverly Garland, and Lee Van Cleef.

The creature and its batlike minions were designed by Paul Blaisdell.

When Beverly first saw the creature, she said "THAT conquered the world?" and kicked it over.

It has been compared to a cucumber, a squash, and other vegetables.

Beverly's robust performance in this film is a fan favorite.

Corman regular Dick Miller plays an Army sergeant.

Critic Leonard Maltin deemed the film "... well acted and interesting but awkwardly plotted."

It was remade by Larry Buchanan in 1966  as "Zontar, The Thing From Venus."

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