TV: C is for...

Cat from Outer Space, The

YOU’VE NO idea how glad we are that our Creamy timespan coincides with D*****’s lowest creative and commercial ebb. That said, this live actioner did dominate film shows and holiday TV in a similar way to DIGBY. Basically as per the title, with the eponymous feline talking in a measured American voice via glowing green flea collar. Could also make things float. Closer in spirit and execution to a CFF Film, though they never had RODDY MACDOWELL mithering about in the background. And that’s it. Other than the fact that the guy who trained the cat later explained how he would place the moggy in a box and shake it up before takes, so as to create an aura of ‘otherness’ about the (let’s face it) bog standard feline.

    I saw this at a kids matinee at RAF Leeming. It wasn’t that bad but not in the same league as That Darned Cat and the legendary drive in scene.

    I always recall the scene involving betting on a pool game (which featured over-our-kiddie-heads dialogue about whether the “mark” had a “constitooshinal right” to make an absurd bet or something like that; the cat used its moggy-powers to make all the balls rush towards the holes anyway) and the shoehorned-in “supervillain” who looked a bit like Roger Delgado’s Master and who showed-up out of nowhere in the last 20 minutes or so.
