Gillian Wallace Horvat on

I Married a Monster from Outer Space

Released 1958
Distributor Paramount Pictures

Women exchanged knowing looks when they stood in line for this sci-fi classic about a nervous bride and her otherworldly groom; the movie’s droll title was part of the fun, even though both Tom Tryon and Gloria Talbott play their roles with utmost seriousness. Gene Fowler Jr.’s genuinely eerie take on the war between the sexes clicked with both audiences and critics alike, scoring big time at the box office.
