|Lobby cards are a form of movie advertising that were quite common from the early days of film, up through the B-movie-rich 1950s and '60s. Usually issued in sets of eight, each card featured a different scene from the film. These days, full sets of lobby cards are highly sought after by collectors.
After releasing lobby card sets for "The Giant Spider," "Attack of the Moon Zombies" and "The Late Night Double Feature," a new set for the movie that started the Mihmiverse, "The Monster of Phantom Lake," is now available as an extremely-limited-run collectible!
Designed by Mr. Mihm himself, this set of eight 8.5" x 11" lobby cards depicts scenes from the film and are hand-colorized and stylistically "weathered" to look extra retro!

Invasion of the Saucer-Men (1957)
Directed by Edward Cahn
Starring Steven Terrell and Gloria Castillo
It's a dark night and a pair of 35-year-old teenagers (as most were in classic 1950s B-grade cinema) are on their way to lover's lane. They keep their lights off in fear of the crotchety, giant-shotgun-toting farmer who owns the land on which the make-out spot sits. In the distance, an alien spacecraft lands. One of its creepy, bug-eyed inhabitants exits and begins to scout around. As the alien and the headlight-less vehicle cross paths, the creature is unceremoniously killed. What follows is a preposterously goofy and altogether fun story involving an opportunistic businessman, horny teenagers, inept army guys, menacing three-foot-tall, needle-fingered aliens, the local police department, and one inebriated bull. Though the production values of this film are in the very-low-budget range, the alien design (and the film's poster) are iconic to the "classic drive-in" era. "Invasion of the Saucer Men" was originally intended to be a serious alien invasion movie but, at some point during production it became an outright comedy. As a result, the film occasionally feels somewhat uneven. Aside from that, the final product is quite funny. If you can somehow find a copy of this film (it'll most likely be a bootleg, as the rights have been tied up for decades), check it out. It's a perfect example of the particular kind of cheesiness that I, as a filmmaker, strive to re-create!

Do you have several bananas starting to turn brown on your kitchen counter? If you do, I have a delicious banana bread recipe for youand it's not your standard banana bread recipe. It's banana goodness fit for The King!
Elvis Banana Bread
Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, whisk the first six ingredients. In another bowl, whisk bananas, eggs, peanut butter, applesauce, oil and vanilla until blended. Add to flour mixture; stir just until moistened. Fold in chocolate chips.
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 4 medium ripe bananas, mashed
- 2 eggs
- 1/2 cup creamy peanut butter
- 1/4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1/4 cup canola oil
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2/3 cup semisweet chocolate chips
Transfer to three 5-3/4x3x2-in. loaf pans coated with cooking spray. Bake 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool.
Yield: 3 mini loaves (6 slices each)
My monsters-with-king-size-appetites ate this right up (literally within minutes!) and give it 5 out of 5 "mind control rings." (Come to the world premeire of "Danny Johnson Saves The World" and you'll better understand the reference!)
Here is a little tip: whenever you have a brown banana, throw it in the freezer until you need it. When you do, just put them on the counter for two hours and they'll be thawed and ready to go!
You can find this recipe (and many more like it) and its corresponding nutrition information on the Taste of Home website!
