Very recently, I read on the net that the movie "Alien" was inspired by
the A.E. Van Vogt novel "The Voyage of the Space Beagle". But I
remember another movie that came out in the late sixties, and it could
also have influenced the makers of the Alien movie.

There were a group of astronaut/explorers/soldiers in an spaceship
that looked like a giant tube (doughnut). They should have called
the movie "The Voyage of The Space Bagel" :o . Well, they encounter a
meteor/planet and they send an investigating team for exploration.
They find a greenish plant-like organism and on their way back, one of
the naughty organisms attaches itself to one of the crew's spacesuit :eek:.

Anyway, as you might have guessed it, upon arrival at the spaceship,
the greenish organism starts to multiply and grows into a huge beast :D.
Once the crew find out about the presence of the Alien on the spaceship,
they try to destroy it. In one scene, when one of the crew tries to
shoot at the alien, the ship's doctor shouts :"don't touch it, don't
touch it". Sounds familiar :rolleyes:?

Long time ago, I saw the movie on a video tape, but I can't recall the name of the movie :confused:.
Has anybody seen the movie, and knows the name of the movie?

It's been a while, but it sounds to me like The Green Slime:

Hello Arthur

Although I don't have access to the video, but based on the readings on the net, I think that is the movie I was trying to recall (The Green Slime) .

Thanks to the puppet master!

The puppet master is glad to help-when I can, if I can! :D

Oddly, this flick is not out on DVD yet. Huh.

Well, I must admit that I have not read the Van Vogt
novel, so I had to do my homework to find out something
about it (I am presently overseas, and I do not have a
readily access to sci-fi material). For those who are
interested, you can checkout this site:

So, one can conclude that "The Voyage of the Space Beagle",
and "The Green Slime" had elements that was also present in
the "Alien" movie.
