The Quatermass Xperiment (dir. Val Guest) delivers classic and intelligent science fiction with that Hammer touch, and this episode of 1951 Down Place delivers a discussion of the film that ranks Number 3 on Scott’s Top Five Hammer Films list.  Near the end of the discussion, Scott asks his enthusiastic co-hosts of The Quatermass Xperiment managed to find its way onto their own Top Five Lists – you’ll have to listen to hear their answers.  Listener feedback rounds out the show, and the Down Placers express their enthusiasm for next month’s film.
