FEATURING ANN ROBINSON
of the B-Movie Monster
Fantasy Film Worlds of George Pal
for Each Other
War of the Worlds1953
Ann Robinson, the first woman in
films to help stave off a Martian onslaught, began her
brief but memorable movie career as the youngest stunt
woman in Hollywood. The 17-year-old starlet took to tumbling
in order to attain status in the Screen Actors Guild.
"I was an extra on A Place in the Sun,"
she recalls. "Fortunately, George Stevens said, 'Who
has a SAG card here?' and I raised my hand immediately
because a lot of the extras weren't interested. I was
lucky enough to be standing near Mr. Stevens. He said,
'Okay, stand over here, and when Liz Taylor walks through
the door, say 'Hello Angela.' That was my debut."
"When men of different planets unite to combat the most
loathsome peril the universe has ever known!"
"Too awesome to describe. Too terrifying to escape.
Too powerful to stop!"
Monster From Green Hell
"The screen's first story of space islands in the sky!"
