Forces of Geek "A History of Sci-Fi Cinema" - Pt VII

The fine folks over at Forces of Geek have allowed me the space and time to ramble on about the history of science fiction cinema.  These bi-weekly columns, will make an attempt, however feeble, at discussing the history of this often chided cinematic genre.  From its birth to the latest CGI box office hits, I will take a look at the films that have filled the genre, as well as their literary influences and TV offshoots.  In this episode, my seventh in the series, I take a look at the cheap films and super TV from the year 1952, one of the early years of the decade that what would become known as the hey day of sci-fi cinema.

Read my column, "1952: The Year of the Slave Girl and the Man of Steel on TV," at Forces of Geek.
