Synopsis

Double Feature: 60th Anniversary! THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS, 1953, Warner Bros., 80 min. Dir. Eugene Lourie. A giant prehistoric creature called a rhedosaurus is awakened by nuclear testing and travels to New York City, where he takes out his bad temper on the stunned population. Based on a short story by longtime Ray Harryhausen pal Ray Bradbury. <br /><br /> MIGHTY JOE YOUNG, 1949, Warner Bros., 94 min. Inspired as a boy by the pioneering stop-motion work of Willis O’Brien on KING KONG, Harryhausen got the chance to work with his hero years later - along with KING KONG co-director Ernest B. Schoedsack - on this marvelous adventure/fantasy story about a beautiful woman and her best friend, a giant, kindhearted gorilla. Academy Award winner for Best Visual Effects.
