Filmsite's Greatest Disaster Film Scenes (107 movies items)

"The famed schlockmeister B-director Bert Gordon (nicknamed Mr. Big, whose initials were B.I.G.) specialized in cheesy "giant mutated monster and giant people" films (often with disaster film elements) with cheap special effects, the most famous being The Amazing Colossal Man (1957), about Army Lt. Colonel Glenn Manning (Glenn Logan), who in a futile attempt to save a downed pilot, was blasted by a plutonium bomb, and grew to the height of 50 feet as a bald giant and then rampaged through Las Veg"

" One of the reasons that the 50's were one of my favorite eras for movies is because it was during this period that they made a buncha films that I included on My Favorite Giant Monster Movies list. Okay, okay, you might think that technically, this isn't so much a giant monster movie, as it is a giant man movie.
