BEAST FROM THE BEGINNING OF TIME was made around 1965 and financed by KARD Channel 3 as a made-for-TV movie that was never actually aired at the time of its
production. (...) It eventually aired on Wichita TV near Halloween in 1981. Leahy was better known as The Host from "The Host and Rodney," the
local horror movie show. The rest of the cast included Dick Welsbacher (from WSU's theater department), Webb Smith, Henry Harvey ("Freddy Fudd"
kiddie show host), Chuck Kneisler, Ralph Seeley, John Froome, and Dusty Herring. Most of these folks were local TV personalities.
The recorded intro to that 1980/81 KARD TV broadcast, featuring several cast & crew members, and a few images from the movie, can now be seen at
There is also an article in The Wichita Eagle from 23 July 2004, indicating that the movie had just had its
theatrical premiere with several surviving cast and crew members in attendance [link;
I haven't read the whole article, only the free introductory section].

I stand corrected- Bill is absolutely right about AIP not filming in AZ. The title I was thinking of being shot at Colossal Cave was
THE INCREDIBLE PETRIFIED WORLD (with Carradine, 1960). Not sure how much footage from that location ended up in the movie, though. Bill, you may know a lot
more about that than I do!

What about Let's Scare Jessica To Death? (Filmed in my home state of Connecticut.) And the Utah-filmed Carnival of Souls? Where was Lemora: A Child's
Tale of the Supernatural filmed?
