This creature scared me in 1957 - love to see it again., 24 April 2004
I saw this gem in 1957 at the Vineland Drive In, La Puente, California
(which still exists! Saw Hellboy there last night.) The creature was so
believable it scared me into peeking from beneath a blanket. I was eleven.
was hooked. Sci-Fi rules. Harryhausen's work is amazing and reason enough
seek it out. I was thrilled to discover it is available on DVD, and
disappointed that some TV stations cut the elephant/creature fight scene
fear of upsetting animal rights folks.
I will definitely find that DVD - and thanks to someone for noting the
screen version is best, the "Wide-screen" is actually cropped top and
bottom. I wanna see it all!
