I noticed at 1:45 mark, in new Ready Player One trailer that The Iron Giant and Harryhausen’s Cyclops from The 7th Voyage of Sinbad make cameos.

Congrats GTD!

The Cliff Monster (1960)

Here’s Youtube link and some screen shots from the Bob Burns and Paul and Jackie Blaisdell home movie film “The Cliff Monster”. This would be the last film of a Blaisdell creation. The monster/puppet used a clock drive mechanism, which anticipated Carlo Rambaldi’s ET and CE3K aliens by near 20 years.

RIP Chief Wahoo (1948-2019)
