Based on a Ray Bradbury story, special effects by Ray Harryhausen: This 1953 movie was so successful for Warner Brothers that it spawned Japan's "Gojira" ("Godzilla") one year later. This was the first of the giant monster movies where the source of the monster's size was the atomic bomb or atomic energy. It spawned many others. (Even if the source of the monster giantism later morphed to genetic experimentation or whatever.) • A fun watch for fans of creature features. This movie holds up very well.
