Gorgo (1961)

UK 72m, Colour
Director: Eugène Lourié; Cast: Bill Travers, William Sylvester, Vincent Winter, Christopher Rhodes, Joseph O’Conor, Bruce Seton, Martin Benson

gorgoRising from the Irish Sea and standing 65 feet tall and heavier than six elephants, Gorgo is a terrifying creature that is captured and taken to London as a sideshow attraction. Borrowing story elements from both Godzilla (1954) and King Kong (1933), it seems inevitable that Gorgo is destined to wreak havoc on the streets of London. Unannounced to the authorities, the real danger remains lurking beneath the sea, at least until she learns that her son has a job at the circus (Klaus Ming July 2014).
