There are times in an Academy Award Winning Actor's life when they gotta put food on the table.

I assume this is what Dean Jagger (Best Supporting Actor, 1949, "Twelve O'Clock High") was thinking when he signed on the dotted line for "X The Unknown".

The movie itself was a blatant attempt to sidestep Quatermass creator Nigel Kneale's cease and desist from using his character; undeterred, Hammer basically filed the serial numbers off the script (renamed the character) and filmed it anyway.

That's how we get a Best Supporting Actor waving around a Geiger counter and battling a giant blob that crawls up out of the earth and melts people's faces off.
