Invasion of the Body Snatchers

Well, it 's been a while since I've shared some stills with you guys so here is another instalment of mid century sci fi garment love for you :)

Some of these stills are from the 1956 original and others from the colourized version of the same. Invasion of the Body Snatchers is a rather entertaining seed pod horror in which the inhabitants of a small town are one by one replaced by imposters. So much for Capgrass. ;)













Watch out for them body snatchers and have a great day!

    great great movie! love the captures of the stills too!
    I have a vivid memory of watching this and the blob when I was very young and being slightly traumatized, I had nightmares about both and now it makes me wonder what my mother was thinking letting me watch them. lol I have since come to love them both. (although the blob still freaks me out a bit.)

    It kills me how perfectly groomed and polished women were in 50s films like this and Hitchcock movies like Rear Window.

  5. great stills. i have yet to see this movie. the clothing is fabulous.

    By the way, i just properly paid attention to your cute header. It reminds me of that children's book, the borrowers. I guess that would make you Arrietty.

  7. i love noodles in any form, and if i'm feeling up to it pre-potluck i will occasionally toss some pasta with pesto and tomatoes and call it good :) luckily last night someone brought spicy peanut noodles, which i've been craving lately and did not disappoint.

    also, the only old scifi movie i've seen was 'the blob' and my boyfriend and i just thought it was so terrible we had to stop watching halfway through. this one looks a little more entertaining!
