40TH ANNIVERSARY FILM SCREENING OF THE GREEN SLIME WITH STARS ROBERT HORTON AND LUCIANA PALUZZI TAKES PLACE AT THE LOS ANGELES COMIC BOOK AND SCIENCE FICTION CONVENTION ON SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 8, 2009

The LOS ANGELES COMIC BOOK AND SCIENCE FICTION CONVENTION spotlights a 40th Anniversary Film Screening of THE GREEN SLIME on Sunday, November 8, 2009. Attending will be stars ROBERT HORTON and LUCIANA PALUZZI, reunited for the first time since the release of THE GREEN SLIME, for an on stage interview on the making of the Movie.

THE GREEN SLIME is considered a Science Fiction cult classic for its low budget Special Effects, wacky theme song, and very splashy Movie Poster Art. A Space Station is invaded by tentacled green alien creatures that multiply when hit with laser guns. This leads to the grand Outer Space battle with the crew suiting up with flying jet packs to destroy THE GREEN SLIME by blowing up the Space Station. THE GREEN SLIME was heavily marketed at the time of its 1969 release, appearing on magazine covers such as Famous Monsters of Filmland#57.

THE GREEN SLIME was directed by Kinji Fukasaku, who went on to critical acclaim for another cult Film, Battle Royale. Bill Finger, one of the three Screenwriters for THE GREEN SLIME, worked with Bob Kane in 1939 on the creation of Batman, as well as writing the first BATMAN story in Detective Comics#27, his landmark first appearance.

The 40th Anniversary Screening of THE GREEN SLIME will be shown on Film, not DVD, at 12:00 P.M. ROBERT HORTON and LUCIANA PALUZZI will appear on stage at 1:30 P.M. to discuss the making of THE GREEN SLIME. ROBERT and LUCIANA will be signing autographs from 11:00 A.M.-4:00 P.M. (and while there is a charge for the autograph it includes a photo). This is a rare opportunity to receive an autograph from the two leads of THE GREEN SLIME. ROBERT HORTON starred as Flint McCullogh in the Wagon Train TV Series, as well as SPY KILLER, a series of two TV Movies. LUCIANA PALUZZI is known for her role as Fiona Volpe, the henchwoman to Largo in the James Bond Film Thunderball and guest starring roles in TV Series such as The Man from U.N.C.L.E. and The Girl from U.N.C.L.E.

J. MICHAEL STRACZYNSKI, the Creator of BABYLON 5 will appear on stage at 2:00 P.M. to discuss writing the screenplay for the new Movie NINJA ASSASSIN, produced by the Wachowski Brothers (The Matrix, V for Vendetta), as well as his writing such Marvel Comic Books as THOR, AMAZING SPIDER-MAN, and DC Comics THE BRAVE AND THE BOLD. CLAYTON CRAIN, the Artist for X-FORCE/NEW MUTANTS: NECROSHA appears all day to sign autographs. The LOS ANGELES COMIC BOOK AND SCIENCE FICTION CONVENTION also features a Dealers Room full of Old and New Comic Books, Toys, Movie Memorabilia, Trading Cards, DVD's and much more. Admission is only $8.00, five years and under are free. Show Hours are 10:00 A.M.-5:00 P.M. The event takes place at the Shrine Auditorium Expo Center, across the street from USC College.
