Even though a couple of doctors seem quite taken with Beverly Garland's appearance in The Alligator People (dir. Roy Del Ruth), the film has a lot more going for it than that! Returning guest Tom Biegler joins Derek to talk about this 20th Century Fox film from 1959 that seems to have all the trappings of a Universal monster movie from the early 50s! Lon Chaney, Jr., makes a splash in the film . . . and not just because he's in the swamp with the alligators! Additionally, the Rondo Award nominations were announced this week, and Monster Kid Radio is on the ballot! Finally, Derek makes an announcement at the end of this episode.
