Latitude Zero (1969)
today- or tomorrow, really, celebrates the release of this wild and wonderful movie. I never saw it growing up- not even on the celebrated KWGN Channel 2. it wasn't until 1989 that I saw it on Channel 31, late night, and they aired it twice in about a month.
it's full of gadgets, cool ships and monsters, plus it's all in English.
I would have loved it as a kid. I remember my cousin Todd telling me about it, describing the gloves with all the powers they had in them. and of course the pictures in Famous Monsters #114 were cool as well. I greatly enjoy it now, and knowing all the back story behind the movie makes me amazed it even got made.
I'm still more astounded it got a legit R1 DVD release here in this country.
