My favorite moment is when the cops in Them
note that the sugar supply in the demolished general store in the desert has been "tampered with"--cue the ominous music complete with ant sounds....
I came across this exchange between the director of the movie and his editor working on Them
that made me chuckle. Maybe it will you too:
During post production, director Gordon Douglas asked the editor how the movie looked. "And he said 'fine.' Douglas said, 'Does it look honest?' The editor said, 'As honest as twelve foot ants can look.'
Honest enough for all of us who love the one and only Them!
Please note Joan Weldon's lady-like attire, complete with pumps, hat, charm bracelet and dainty crouch as she tries to avoid being an ant snack.
