Can you tell the difference between a real movie and a fake film from The Andy Griffith Show?

Was this a title playing at the Mayberry Theater… or on Svengoolie?!

 

The late Fifties were a golden era for science-fiction B-movies. Giant monsters, flying saucers, invading insects, 50 ft. women—you name it, it probably attacked Earth. 

Well, it seems like that genre was a bit hit in Mayberry in the early 1960s. Maybe it took a little longer for pictures to make their premiere down there. 

Throughout The Andy Griffith Show, many movies are mentioned playing at the Mayberry Theater. They're all made-up. But they sure sound real!

Let's see if you can tell the difference between a real movie and a phony flick from The Andy Griffith Show. In fact, the real ones have all appeared on our own Svengoolie!

Watch Svengoolie on MeTV!

Can you tell the difference between a real movie and a fake film from The Andy Griffith Show?

"You got 10 out of 12.
Impressive work! Mayberry After Midnight gives your performance 3.5 clovers! They are hard critics to please. They gave the same rating to "the suspense movie of the year."

Dobie Gillis started the bit of making up fake movies with amusing names.
Maynard G. Krebs(Bob Denver) would goad Dobie into seeing "The Monster That Ate Cleveland",
"Son of the Monster That Ate Cleveland" etc.
Pay attention also to the names of the "stars" on the movie posters, those were insider
jokes as well.

12/12--Loved all of those 50's movies since they were in my era; 'specially monumentally enjoyed " THEM " { the giant ants--with James Arness }!
"Them" was outstanding on so many levels, not just a 'monster' movie.

12/12. I remember some of the titles mentioned in "TAGS". And I'm a big 50s sci-fi fan so I know those titles, too.

11 of 12! I missed #7, The House Without Windows. I zipped through this quiz real fast because most questions were pretty easy. I should have got this one, I just took a wild guess. Another fun quiz!!

9/12. I made one mistake and answered the wrong question, also- "The island of mysterious Beautiful Women? Why haven't I seen that one? Nothing like a B movie with wild women, they're usually underdressed.

#7 The House Without Windows is an actual movie.

PERFECT. Great guess work. Should I 'pick 6 ?' Maybe.
