Dragon's Domain is proud to present the third volume in their Golden Age series with three more classic original scores by musical masters of the genre.

CAT-WOMEN OF THE MOON (1953) was an early work by legendary composer Elmer Bernstein, who went on to score such popular movies as STRIPES and GHOSTBUSTERS. Released September 3, 1953, this film shares a plot similar to a movie released just five months earlier, ABBOTT AND COSTELLO GO TO MARS, where an alien society led by beautiful women who seduce visiting Earth astronauts. This has now become a familiar and overused trope in science-fiction films.

CAT-WOMEN OF THE MOON stretched its limited budget with costumes and Chesley Bonestell lunar background paintings recycled from DESTINATION MOON (1950), plus the space ship interior set was borrowed from PROJECT MOONBASE (released to theaters just one day later).

ROBOT MONSTER, released 2 months after the original INVADERS FROM MARS, shares a similar theme of an alien invasion as seen through a young boy's dream. Filmed for a fraction of INVADER'S $290,000 budget at an estimated cost of $16,000 (with a quarter of that funding its 3D process), ROBOT MONSTER made a sizable profit, grossing $1 million.

Bernstein's score used only an 8-piece ensemble, yet his theme for the character of Ro-Man is very effective and memorable, thanks in part to the unusual inclusion of chimes, which have become synonymous with the film.

DEVIL GIRL FROM MARS comes from "across the pond," produced in England by American brothers Edward and Harry Danzinger. Their prolific output during the 1950s and 60s was due to a belief that nothing should be wasted, especially pre-booked studio space. They would frequently commission a script to take advantage of standing sets when a production managed wrap up early. Such was the case with 1954's DEVIL GIRL FROM MARS when CALLING SCOTLAND YARD, a series of theatrical featurettes (compiled into the 1956 NBC-TV series ADVENTURE THEATER) left the brothers with studio space reserved and paid for in advance.

Only his third film credit, the score was composed by Edwin Astley (1922-1998). Strongly influenced by jazz, he played both the clarinet and saxophone, frequently performing in various ensembles during and after World War II. In 1953, he began film scoring for the Danzinger Brothers before becoming known worldwide for his memorable work in the British made ITC TV series DANGER MAN (aka SECRET AGENT, 1960), THE SAINT (1962), and THE CHAMPIONS (1968).

THE GOLDEN AGE OF SCIENCE FICTION: VOLUME 3 has been mastered by James Nelson at Digital Outland. Exclusive liner notes by author David Hirsch explore these classic films from sci-fi craze of the 1950s.

SPECIAL NOTE: These recordings were originally taken from analog masters and music & effects tracks and therefore certain limitations from the source tapes may be evident. We have tried to preserve as closely as possible, the quality of the original recordings.
