The Fly

I remember seeing ‘The Fly’, when I was  kid, not the 1986 remake with Jeff Goldblum, which I thought was pretty good, but the original 1958 version with Vincent Price. It was teleportation gone terribly wrong when a fly slips in the device with the scientist, and well, quite a mistake and a ‘mix-up’ that was!  I bet Captain Kirk never had this problem when he said “Beam me up, Scotty.” Some films just stay with you through the years.

  1. Don’t remember the original which means you are older than me or my memory has gone for a Burton and I am considerably older than you. As my ego is fragile I am going to opt for the former, which means you are a really old git. 😉

    I remember the Jeff Goldblum version. Quite enjoyed it at the time as well.

    • Lol! 🙂 I am not quite that old, Ark. The original came out 6 years before I was born. It’s a classic. The ending got me when a fly with a man’s head caught in spider’s web was pleading “Help me!”.

  2. I remember it also, a true 50s horror classic like The Blog, It, and Creature from the Black Lagoon to name just a few more. Most of the 50s sci-fi movies were pretty hokey by today’s standards but like you said, some films just stay with you.

    • I remember the films you mention, and how exciting they were and scary seeing them when I was a kid. Today’s generation would probably laugh at them, but I still like the old Frankenstein and Dracula, also.

    I am always astonished how life expresses itself in all kind of forms, like kaleidoscopic facets – and we can see even in this fly the wonderful beauty and building behind.

    Thanks for sharing, Pete 🙂
    All the best
