200 milliroentgens is not anywhere near lethal. For that you would need an exposure of 500 roentgens (about 2500x the dose) for 5 hours. Further, they state earlier that the contamination is alpha particles which generally cannot be lethal unless ingested. See more »
"Gog" sure scared the hell out of all of us "Saturday-matinee" habituees in '54. The sound, the monkey experiment, the levels below ground, the radiated plant, the desert mirror scene, and of course, the two flame-throwing robots, Gog and Magog. Ivan Tors (of TV's Science Fiction Theater) did a damned good job in keeping us kids on the edge of our seats. Have a faded bootleg copy. Sure wish that the current copyright owners would issue a restored copy on VHS in the near future.
