Speaking of Beverly Garland, here she is taking a little swim with Jil Jarmyn (on right) in a little film called Swamp Women from 1955. It’s another Roger Corman epic that apparently is in the public domain. Fans of Mystery Science Theater 3000 should recognize this film though it was shown under the title Swamp Diamonds.
Long before he was asking young boys if they’d ever been in a Turkish prison, Peter Graves of Airplane! fame made this sci-fi epic alongside the mighty Lee Van Cleef and the beautiful Beverly Garland. This Roger Corman classic released through American International Pictures is about a creature from Venus hellbent on world domination! Oo-ee-oo!
Notable also for featuring Dick Miller (Gremlins, Rock N Roll High School, etc., etc.) who not only appeared in most of Roger Corman’s films but has been in EVERY film directed by Joe Dante.
