I watched the 1957 black and white Warner Bros., Sci-Fi/Horror movie, The Black Scorpion on Svengoolie. It was filmed at Estadio Universitario, Mexico City, Distrito Federal, Mexico. The stop-action animation was by King Kong expert Willis O’Brien with the help of Pete Peterson who did most of the hands on animation. Due to the low budget, most of it was created in Peterson’s home garage. The 30 foot long inch worm was an unused prop from the King Kong movie.
The Black Scorpion has been used several times on Mystery Science Theater 3000. When an earthquake strikes Mexico a new volcano is unearthed. Geologists investigating the site find a destroyed house, police car, a dead officer and slaughtered livestock.
The narrator and others voices just heard in the movie was Bob Johnson (most famous for giving Mr. Phelps his orders on the tape recorder in Mission: Impossible).
