You mean I can't get a real Fire Maiden of Outer Space?

Can you see what it says at the bottom of this screencap from the opening of Olive Films' DVD release of "Fire Maidens of Outer Space" (1956)?


First of all...thanks! Wouldn't have known that otherwise. But does that mean that all the terrestrial characters are REAL?

Second...is it just me, or does that announcement seem like kind of a killjoy? "Don't get too invested in these Fire Maidens; they're just made up characters in a made-up movie."

It's almost like the movie is trying to warn us right away that it's not going to be nearly as fun as the title makes us think it is.
