Jack Pollexfen (1908-2003) was a journalist-turned film producer who brought us many adventure/sci-fi films in the 1950s and 60s, including The Neanderthal Man which we ran into a few weeks back. Here are some other highlights.
1950. Jackie Gleason/Yvonne De Carlo/Rock Hudson do Aladdin.
1951. Recycled sets from Joan of Arc (1948) to cut costs. Made for $41,000.
1952. Probably first film about long-term effects of nuke war?
Completed in 1950, not released until ’52. AKA At Sword’s Point.
1955. Finished in ’53, but had a hard time with the censors, thanks to Lili St. Cyr’s dancing.
1957. Double-billed with The Cyclops (1957).
1963. AKA: The Atomic Brain. Shot in 1958.
