Monster PSA: Lt. Col. Glenn Manning

This week's "Monster PSA" poster is a bit of a change of pace, in that I have the title character (from 1957's The Amazing Colossal Man) doing the speaking, not the actor.

But when I was putting this poster together, using the actor's name just didn't work (sorry, Mr. Glenn Langan!). There was something about the very-important sounding "Lt. Col. Glenn Manning" that worked a lot better in this context. The public service message seemed obvious, considering who was delivering it.

The Amazing Colossal Man was one of those cheapie "B" sci-fi films of the 1950s that was run on my local UHF station seemingly every other Saturday, so I became very familiar with it. Its not a great movie or anything, but it has an endearing goofiness that holds up better than a lot of other movies from that era.

(This Monster PSA poster is available at my Zazzle store as a t-shirt and mug)
