Continuing the Daleks-Invasion Earth: 2050 A.D. theme on the blog, here’s a few more of my previously posted photos.
Here’s the remote control that comes with the large Product Enterprise movie Daleks.
It looks pretty good to me, and wouldn’t take much to make a really nice mode if one ever turned up minus a Dalek.
As for the 'real' thing I really like the unique look of the Dalek Saucer in the film, and can still remember watching it on the big screen way back in the sixties.
From what I can gather there was just one filming miniature which was just under five feet long, and although it appears to get destroyed in the film, it does survive, being replaced by a pre-weakened stunt double.
The model made another cameo appearance in the 1969 Tigon film, The Body Stealers . It 's even on the film’s poster.
I believe the matt painting showing the rear of the saucer would have been done by artist, Gerald Larn who worked in the Special Effects Dept. under the direction of Ted Samuals at Shepperton Studios. Both the Daleks films were produced by Amicus (although credited to Aaru for contractual reasons) and special effects man, Ted Samuals worked on other Amicus films – Dr Terror’s House of Horrors, The Skull and The Psychopath, while artist Gerald Larn worked on Amicus’, Tales from the Crypt.
I'm making the assumption it still exists somewhere, as I believe it was sold at a film props auction a good while back.
Anyone know it's current whereabouts?
