No, it didn't "succeed as a B movie" because:
1) It cost too much money to make.
2) The special effects were too good.
3) It starred too many 'big name' actors.
4) It was 30-60 minutes too long.

Agreed. 1950s sci-fi films were something that I had long ignored except for the classics. Now, since "Skull" came out, I've seen tonnes of them and can appreciate Indy 4 a tiny bit more.
