Sci Fi FLYING SAUCERS OVER ISTANBUL

(1955) Orhan Erçin, Zafer Önen, Türkan Samil, Özcan Tekgül, Mirella Monro.  This really isn’t much of a movie, yet somehow it kind of works (5.5 on IMDB).  There’s a flying saucer, a dorky robot, an elixir of life, and a plethora of cheesy alien dames who have come to Earth looking for…you guessed it…men!  And who do they find?  That king of Turkish comedy teams, Erçin and Önen, who aren’t the greatest of comedy duos, but are LIGHT YEARS ahead of their pitiful Egyptian counterparts, Ismail and Abdel.  They actually have a few humorous moments here and there, in spite of the incredible cheapness of it all.  The whole movie is an over-the-top display of men lusting for women and women (especially the alien dames) lusting for men.  There’s a ton of belly-dancing and other musical numbers, some of which are pitiful, while others aren’t half-bad.  But the most bizarre moment of all is when they are paid a visit by Marilyn Monroe.  No…not the real Marilyn Monroe, but an actress made up to look and act like her—she even has a few lines in English and does a long, mostly disrobed belly-dance number!  Surprisingly, there are some decent close-ups dropped in here and there during the continual onslaught of on-screen nonsense.  This movie was probably inspired by Abbott and Costello go to Mars, but it seems to have a unique flavor all its own.  (It might actually be better in a twisted sort of way!)  The movie concludes with a council of scientists proclaiming that there is no such thing as UFOs. Right… This is, without a doubt, one of the most interesting, intriguing “bad movies” we’ve ever released.  Cool.  English subs.  From 35mm.
