Rex Reason
(November 30, 1928 – November 19, 2015)

Rex Reason has passed away at 86. He’s best known for the great sci-fi picture This Island Earth (1955, above with Faith Domergue), but he’s also in The Creature Walks Among Us (1956), the third Creature From The Black Lagoon picture. He left the movie business in the 60s and got into real estate.

Blu-ray News #3: Ray Harryhausen Double Feature.

20 million

Mill Creek has come through with a good one: It Came From Beneath The Sea (1955) and 20 Million Miles To Earth (1957) as a Blu-ray double bill. These may be my two favorite Harryhausen films, and I’m glad they’ll be presented without the colorized versions. If nothing else, that omission makes this purchase worthwhile.

It Came From Beneath The Sea stars Kenneth Tobey, who I’d love to see on Blu-ray in Howard Hawks’ The Thing (1951).
