Fly, The (1958) 
Try "The Fly"
3/4 stars

I watched "The Fly" with my kids as part of a project to prepare for the upcoming DreamWorks animated film "Monsters v Aliens".

"The Fly" is one of those classic B-movies from the 1950s. I had seen bits and pieces over the years, but I had never seen the entire movie. The plot involves a scientist who is working on a a method of instantly transporting people across space. When he chooses to conduct his first human test on himself, there is literally a fly in the ointment. The transporter mixes up the scientist and a fly that is stowing away in the chamber, creating a monster mash-up... a human with the head and arm of a fly and a fly with the head and arm of a human! Can either survive without the other? Can the scientist find the fly in time to correct the error? This is the tension on which the entire film hinges.

As always, I also monitored the film for tobacco use. There were a handful of smoking scenes, mostly involving the film's star, Vincent Price. The film earned a SmokeScreeners rating of 3 Butts. For more information on the SmokeScreeners rating system, visit www.SmokeScreener.org.
