WOMEN OF HORROR: BEVERLY GARLAND

IF THERE WERE EVER A TOP GRADE MOVIE MONSTER FIGHTER, IT WAS BEVERLY GARLAND. 

Every bit the equal of her fellow fifties monster fighters John Agar, Richard Carlson or Kenneth Tobey, Beverly Garland could kick hell out of any monster that came down the pike!  And she often did.  She's face up against alligator people,  hook-armed hate-maddened Cajuns, beasts of the amazon, cucumbers from outer space, Neanderthal men and even middle-aged men from outer space!  When did she ever find time to run a hotel chain?!?!  Beverly Garland earned her stripes with:
  • THE NEANDERTHAL MAN (1953)
  • SCIENCE FICTION THEATER "The Negative Man"  (1955)
  • SCIENCE FICTION THEATER "The Other Side of the Moon" (1956)
  • IT CONQUERED THE WORLD (1956)
  • CURUCU, BEAST OF THE AMAZON (1956)
  • NOT OF THIS EARTH (1957)
  • THE ALLIGATOR PEOPLE (1958)
  • TWILIGHT ZONE "The Four of Us Are Dying" (1960)
  • THRILLER "Knock Three One Two"  (1960)
  • TWICE TOLD TALES (1963)
Yikes!  It's an Alligator People . . . person
