The original script had no military action indicated. Director Eugène Lourié argued that gunfire would kill a beast, no matter how big. The King Brothers wanted guns and they got them. See more »
The sailors put into port on what is supposed to be a small island off the West coast of Ireland. They encounter a local, and ask him a question, which he answers in Irish (Gaelic): "Cad a dhéanfaimid anois?" whilst gesturing in the direction they need to travel. This means, "What will we do now?" Anybody who understood this will wonder why he would answer in this way, until later in the film, when it gradually emerges that this is what he always says when required to utter a line that we are not supposed to understand. There is actually one occasion when the phrase used fits the situation. See more »

Gee,after reading all the comments from the MST3K-wannabes,I'm not sure whether I should say that I enjoyed "Gorgo",that the special effects were quite adequate,if not outstanding,that Travers,Sylvester,and Winters do quite well in the acting department,and that it has a really nice Angelo Lavagnino musical score.Oh well,I'll say it anyway..........
