Creature with the Atom Brain - Lobby Cards

The Terror From Beyond Space - My Superiors On Earth Following the credits, narration over animation by Marshall Thompson (as "Colonel Carruthers"), events back on earth, then signs of trouble for Commander "Van" Heusen (Kim Spalding) back on the spaceship, in It! The Terror From Beyond Space, 1958.
It! The Terror From Beyond Space - Like Candy From A Box Space crew girl Ann (Shawn Smith) showing some support for Colonel Carruthers (Marshall Thompson), accused of killing his Mars-landing crew, then with her Captain "Van" Heusen (Kim Spalding), in It! The Terror From Beyond Space, 1958.
It! The Terror From Beyond Space - Grenades Big trouble as the as-yet unseen "It" (Ray Corrigan) is loose in the ship's vents, Van Heusen (Kim Spalding) and Carruthers (Marshall Thompson) leading a nervous search party, to little avail, in Edward L. Cahn's It: The Terror From Beyond Space, 1958.
Guns, Girls And Gangsters (1958) - Clear The Decks Lee Van Cleef is the villain watching from outside and Gerald Mohr, though he's a crook himself, is the object of the affection of "Vi" (Mamie Van Doren), performing her second original tune in the picture, at a New Year's party, in Guns, Girls And Gangsters, 1958.
Guns, Girls And Gangsters (1958) - Released From San Quentin The narrator is not credited but meant to be credible, introducing Las Vegas, anti-hero Wheeler (Gerald Mohr) and target Darren (Grant Richards), opening the Mamie Van Doren feature from low-budget Imperial Pictures, Guns, Girls And Gangsters, 1958.
Guns, Girls And Gangsters (1958) - Singing Bombshell Narration guides ex-con Wheeler (Gerald Mohr) to the Las Vegas-area night club where the main attraction is "Vi" (top-billed Mamie Van Doren), her opening number by Buddy Bregman and Stanley Styne, early in Guns, Girls and Gangsters, 1958, directed by B-movie specialist Edward L. Cahn.
Vice Raid (1960) - As Long As You Want A money-scene with a plot twist, cop Brandon (Richard Coogan) posing as a photographer doesn't know that model Carol (Mamie Van Doren) wants to get busted, as she's really part of a frame up arranged by the prostitution ring he's trying to crack, in Vice Raid, 1960.
