Terror from the Year 5000 (1958) (part 1 of 8)
The Cast! From the Year 5000!!
Dr. Robert Hedges (Ward Costello). The dumbest archaeologist alive. Curator of the Natural History Museum in New York, implying that all other museum curators in the world must have died in a horrible disaster.
Prof. Howard Erling (Frederic Downs). Conducts time travel experiments in his boiler room, then wonders why people call him crazy. Master of the “pained-patronizing” look that makes you feel like you just pissed in his fondue pot.
Claire Erling (Joyce Holden). The Professor’s daughter and Bob’s designated love interest. A walking public service announcement for why girls shouldn’t play with radioactive things.
Victor (John Stratten). Claire’s fiancé and the Professor’s chief financial backer. Has lofty dreams of mating with loads of mutated women.
Old Man Angelo (Fred Herrick). I knew Torgo. I worked with Torgo. Torgo was a friend of mine. You, sir, are no Torgo.
Future Woman (Salome Jens). The titular Terror, and the most optimistic statement yet about the availability of Lee Press-On Nails three thousand years from now.
