The End of Halloween 2011

With these photos, we'll call an end to Halloween movie photo month, such as it turned out. Three from "The Day the Earth Stood Still" (1951) may be familiar to many of you. Unfortunately, the remake with Keanu Reeves was not impressive, and the digitalized Gort (the robot) looked like a fugitive from a cartoon junkyard. The fourth pic is allegedly from "Battle in Outer Space," a movie probably as bad as the photo indicates. I KNOW I've seen this film, probably on some commercial TV station which obtained it almost free of charge, but I can't really remember the details. Nor do I wish to. Likely something out of Japan way back, and if so I can only add, thank heavens for Godzilla, tested and true.
