Just confirmed…Hugh O’Brian

We are very pleased to announce that Hugh O’Brian will be interviewed for Monsters, Martians and Mad Scientists: Horror in the Atomic Age.

Mr. O’Brian is probably best known for playing Wyatt Earp in the television series The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp, which debuted on ABC in 1955. He also appeared in numerous films, including the very first Atomic Age outer space adventure film — 1950’s Rocketship X-M. 

The film was directed by Kurt Neumann (The Fly) and was one of the first to address the dangers of atomic warfare and radiation. In addition to Hugh O’Brian, it starred Lloyd Bridges and Osa Massen.

He formed the organization in 1958 after spending nine days in Africa with Dr. Albert Schweitzer. Since then, HOBY has gone on to host 355,000 high school students at its seminars.

We are looking forward to interviewing Mr. O’Brian about his role in the inception of Atomic Age cinema!
