TITLE: THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS
THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMSDIRECTOR: Eugene Lourie
An atomic test in the Arctic Circle blasts free a gigantic, prehistoric "rhedosaurus" that immediately starts creeping towards New York (its ancestral homeland). The monster's Manhattan stomping scenes are a Ray Harryhausen extra- vaganza of special effects. Sharpshooter Lee Van Cleef kills the Beast at Coney Island using radioactive ammunition. Director Lourie recycled the Beast premise in THE GIANT BEHEMOTH (1959) and GORGO (1961).

Citizen, Communist, Counterspy, Herbert A. Philbrick, did indeed live three lives, but his fourth—and longest—life was spent speaking out against the "Communist Menace"... for a reasonable fee.
