Peter Graves, 1926-2010

We were sad to learn of the passing of former "Mission: Impossible" star Peter Graves this week. In addition to his TV work, he was in a slew of cheap horror and sci-fi flicks over the years, including It Conquered the World (1956), Beginning of the End (1957), Killers From Space (1954) and The Clonus Horror (1979).

He never made a regional horror film, although he was in the Louisiana-lensed Bayou, a.k.a. Poor White Trash in 1957. He also shares a credit with Blood Stalkers director and bigfoot hunter Robert W. Morgan -- the 1976 cryptozoological classic The Mysterious Monsters (1976). So to honor Mr. Graves, a brief video sampling of one of our favorite bigfoot/Loch Ness Monster documentaries:

Here's Graves in a clip from the film:

Here's the ridiculous boy scout dramatization:
