We are delighted to announce that James Best has been added to the lineup of Monsters, Martians and Mad Scientists: Horror in the Atomic Age.
Mr. Best is a Writer/Director/Producer/Actor most famous for the role of Sheriff Roscoe Coltrane on The Dukes of Hazzard. In addition to his work on television, he has also appeared in 83 feature films, working alongside the likes of Humphrey Bogart, James Stewart, Audie Murphy, Henry Fonda, Rock Hudson, Anthony Quinn and Burt Reynolds.
In 1959, he starred in The Killer Shrews with Ingrid Goude. The film’s plot is classic Atomic Age material. Wikipedia describes it as follows: “…a doctor works to make humans half-size. This, apparently, will reduce world hunger as smaller humans would presumably eat less. Unfortunately, his experiments have also created some giant, venomous shrews.”
