// 13

Here are the fifties sci-fi movies of Peter Graves, even though there are only four of them, they are all classic flicks from that era. Peter had 136 acting credits and looking them over, I noticed that in 1998 he did the voice of General Warning on THE ANGRY BEAVERS, he was the narrator on the USAF Briefing Film for ATTACK OF THE EYE CREATURES, he also directed one episode of MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE and one episode of GUNSMOKE!

First up is RED PLANET MARS from 1952, Peter plays an American scientist who contacts Mars by radio and receives information that Mars is a utopia and that Earth's people can be saved if they return to the worship of God!.. Weird.

In 1954, Peter stars as scientist Dr. Martin in KILLERS FROM SPACE. I still love this crazy movie, it has all the elements that make for a fun watch, time after time! They just released a restored version of this movie on DVD that is simply awesome!

My favorite flick of the four is Corman's IT CONQUERED THE WORLD from 1956 with that classic Blaisdell monster from Venus. Love the little flying parasites too, creepy cool. It also stars Beverly (NOT OF THIS EARTH) Garland, Lee (SPACE PATROL) Van Cleef and Sally (WAR OF THE COLOSSAL BEAST) Fraser.

I saw BEGINNING OF THE END in 1957, Peter is another scientist in this wild tale, he gets caught in the terror and takes the lead in figuring out how to kill the giant locust... So, there you go, we will be back on Wednesday with even more prescious Dungeon Cargo!
