These are hilarious! Real sci-fi movie trailers from the 1950s

OK, so I admit I was wasting time. As I was driving to the hospital, I noticed a poster on a bus stop, advertising the imminent release of a remake of The Day The Earth Stood Still, which was one of my favourite 1950s sci-fi films (back in the days when I used to watch such things). Curious as to what they had done with it, I had a look at the web site. Predictably, this led to YouTube (doesn't it always), and the inevitable wasting of time watching videos.

Anyway, along the way, I came across the trailers for two sci-fi films from the 1950s, which were so awful as to be very funny. I have never heard of either of these two films, but judging by the trailers, I don't think many people would have!

Watch the trailer for The Giant Claw if you dare! If you can stop laughing at that one, watch the trailer for Robot Monster and guffaw some more!
