Monster A-Go Go (1965) (part 5 of 8)
We cut to a small plane landing at an airport. Some guy gets out and climbs down the wing. Abruptly, we cut to him in a library talking to Connors near a reel-to-reel tape player. The guy is basically a dead ringer for Michael Badalucco, and he asks Connors if this tape brings him up to date. Connors tells him that’s everything, then notes that for “the last eight weeks, nothing has happened”, because whatever came down in the capsule just disappeared. Yes, that’s right. We’ve now jumped ahead eight weeks, just like that. And all of your burning questions about the first half of this movie will never be answered. Where did Carl drop off Manning? Will Manning ever get back together with Ruth? Whatever happened to Jimmy? Why does Ruth like anchovy olives? And who are the Overlords of the UFO? The world may never know.
Anyway, the guy who just arrived on the plane leans back. “Man, I thought this was gonna be a lock up. Thought it was just legwork when Manning turned it over to me.” Connors actually has the New Guy explain to him the meaning of “legwork” before they get down to business. New Guy wants to see Nora AKA “Dr. Kramer”, learning that she’s probably in her lab. For some reason, Connors feels compelled to explain that she used to work with the dead Dr. Logan, but now works with his brother, Conrad. They both then head over to “the lab”. You know, the place where they presumably have about fifty corpses stacked in a corner?
