Movie Poster Spotlight :: Salvaging Your Cheese Danish :: Sidney Pink's Reptilicus (1961)

As the legend goes, when producer Samuel Z. Arkoff took a look at a rough cut of Sidney's Pink's Reptillicus (1961 / American International) it proved so phonetically challenged -- in that the Danish cast wasn't even close to pulling off a straight English voice track -- that Arkoff demanded the film be dubbed over. For those of you, like me, who've actually seen Denmark's only kaiju eiga movie, know for a fact that the canned voice-overs never quite matching up should have been the least of American International's worries, especially when a glorified sock-puppet is the backbone of your feature. Luckily, Reynold Brown was there to save the day by coaxing them in with another eye-popping poster campaign.
