Secret of the Loch, The (1934)

** (out of 4)

British film about a news reporter going to find out the truth about the Loch Ness Monster and a scientist (Seymore Hicks) who claims it's real. I believe this was the first film to deal with the legendary creature and for the most part it's a real disappointment. There's all sorts of questions asked and discussed so the monster doesn't appear until the final comments. When it does appear the low budget movie just uses some sort of lizard for the special effect. Hicks is madly over the top and keeps the film moving somewhat well.
