Video: The Thing From Another World - Kenneth Tobey / Dewey Martin

With many thanks to SF Signal for the heads up on the availability of this movie on Google video.

'The Thing From Another World,' stars Margaret Sheridan, Kenneth Tobey, Robert Cornthwaite, Douglas Spencer, James R. Young, Dewey Martin (Squee!), Robert Nichols, William Self, Eduard Franz, Sally Creighton and James Arness as ...The Thing (yikes!).

This 1951 film was my introduction to science fiction. It was based on the John W. Campbell Jr. short story, 'Who Goes There?' This movie was re-made in 1982 at 'The Thing,' starring Kurt Russell. (I prefer the original version, as much as I love Kurt Russell.) According to IMDB, it looks like Universal is working on another version for 2010.

This is definitely a snack movie, so get your popcorn and a coca-cola (or whatever) and please enjoy. This flick has everything ... humor, danger, romance, witty dialogue, and ... Dewey Martin!
