The Rat Pack Stars in Metal Men?

Re-uniting most of the cast of “Ocean’s 11”, “The Metal Men” is one of the most beloved, if not innocent and campy, sci-fi films of all time. Not only were the special effects groundbreaking at the time, but the performances that drove the characters were distinct and memorable. Though he wasn’t advertised on any of the film’s posters, Boris Karloff’s depiction of Doc Magnus was by turns hunting and heroic and one of the standouts of the film. In the years since its initial release “The Metal Men” has become a classic “Midnite Movie”. Devotees of the film’s camp quality recite lines from the dialog, sometimes dressed as their favorite Metal Man.
