Guns, tanks, bombs… They’re like toys against The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day!

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic! 1953’s War of the Worlds is our focus today. Produced by George Pal, directed by Byron Haskin (Robinson Crusoe On Mars, Treasure Island, Too Late For Tears) and starring Gene Barry and Ann Robinson this flick set the world on fire (heh) when it was released. It won the Oscar for its groundbreaking special effects, which we’ll see in the pic below. I actually have a lot of love for Spielberg’s WAR OF THE WORLDS, warts and all, but even Spielberg didn’t come close to topping these iconic sci-fi designs. Although they seem misnamed (no three legs... hell, not even one legs on these suckers), the tripods in the original rock so hard and now you can see them being set up! Here’s the pic! Enjoy (and click for the slightly bigger version)!

If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare or the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here. Tomorrow’s Behind the Scenes pic features an alien of a completely different breed and is one of my favorite pics that I’ve collected. See ya’ then! -Quint Follow Me On Twitter
