Quatermass and the Pit, 1967 – ★★★

I’d never seen a Quatermass before! Surprised to see that even though this was on VHS from the ’80s, the entire film was letterboxed to the 35mm frame. Charming and fun in much the way that the ’53 War of the Worlds was. Also, I’m now pretty sure that Quatermass’ tweed, bow tie, and hat look here must have been a solid inspiration for Henry Jones’ wardrobe in Last Crusade.
