Trivia: Born Tom Sanders in Russia, British actor TOM CONWAY (1904-1967) was the look-alike brother of actor George Sanders. Taking over the role from his brother, he appeared in nine movies as the private eye character "The Falcon". Other of Conway's films include: 1940-Sky Murder; 1941-Tarzan's Secret Treasure; 1942's Cat People; Mrs. Miniver; 1943-I Walked with a Zombie; 1948-One Touch of Venus; 1951-Bride of the Gorilla; and 1956's 808-THE SHE-CREATURE.

It's hard to believe that the craggy-faced FRANCIS X. BUSHMAN (1883-1966) in this movie was once adorned by film fans for his handsomeness and physique. He made many silent films, and was known as "The Profile." His handsome face can be seen in 1929's Ben Hur. The craggy one can be seen again in another MSTed sci-fi turkey, 902-THE PHANTOM PLANET.
