All The Best Monster Scenes In "Monster On The Campus" (1958) (video)

Arthur Franz plays college professor Dr. Donald Blake. 

Joanna Moore is his fiancee, Madeline.

Blake is contaminated by the irradiated blood of a prehistoric fish...
...and devolves into an apelike monster.

The monster's attacks Helen Westcott... of "Abbott & Costello Meet Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde."  

Stuntman/actor Eddie Parker plays the monster after the transformation.
Parker also played the title monster in "Abbott & Costello Meet the Mummy."

Franz himself had earlier co-starred in "Abbott & Costello Meet the Invisible Man."

The film was shot in 12 days.

Director Jack Arnold is best known for such films as "Creature From The Black Lagoon" and "It Came From Outer Space."

Arthur Franz disliked movies like this and later chafed at so often being reminded of them.

While critical reception was mixed to poor, the film remains a fan favorite.


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