"Gorgo"

Unstoppable Monsters! week continues at Trailers from Hell with John Landis introducing "Gorgo," production designer-turned-director Eugene Lourie's final entry in his dinosaur trilogy. 

The third time’s the charm for GORGO, which benefitted from a massive MGM ad campaign that made it a must-see for the moppet trade in 1960. Unlike BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS and GIANT BEHEMOTH, this is a man-in-suit Godzilla style epic with elaborate production values apart from the inept sodium-vapor superimpositions. Monarch Books issued an inexplicably sexed-up paperback novelization that introduced many unsuspecting kids to the mysteries of womankind–ironic in that there’s no love interest whatsoever in the movie!
