If you have a chance watch the 1932 version of Hyde.  There's a couple of really bad screw ups in that one that come to mind.  

In one scene, Hyde is looking at himself in a large mirror.  At one point you can see the reflection of a technician in the background.

In another, a close up of Hyde reveals March's teeth clearly visible behind the Hyde teeth.  There may be a couple more that are not coming immediately to mind.  

Can't believe that any editor worth his salt would have missed those.

As for seeing the teeth it is possible that it was caused by a tinting process used in his transformation into Hyde, they had a colour changing lens that rotated from blue to red which each lens revealed deeper characteristics on his face as they turned. This effect came from the earlier movie The Ten commandments 1923 by Cecil B Demille during the leper scenes highlighting their cure,

We've had the King of horror why not the King of the monsters King Kong, in the early gangster movies a "Big ape" was a thug that's not something you could say about Kong, well to his face at least.:)  I like the Mexican covers better there's more going n in the background.

These two are the Mexican covers, I do love a good beat down cover.

Just to boost Kong's image as King here is the collection of Aurora kits that were released in the sixties.

 James Bama created the cover art which are beautiful and I'm sure helped to sell the product, his other well known art was for the Bantam series of Doc Savage novels. 5a9898a770c74_images(1).jpg.6e9772dea58419945fdd3069613e8927.jpg

Kolchak looks surprised.  Where is the zombie's other hand?

It's no surprise the zombie thought he was a ventriloquist (my big word for today) dummy.:)  Or he thought Kolchak was carrying a touch for him?:)

Welcome Lucky Baru.

Another monster maker was the great Ray Harryhausen the animator, he had trained under Willis O'Brien the man who brought King Kong to life.

Ray Harryhausen the Jack Kirby of animation as in way ahead of his time.

That's a mystery started by Famous monsters magazine as the editor claimed to have watched it at the time, then lately there was an article in Filmfax magazine were the authors brother claimed to have seen it back in the eighties. However other than a few stills nothing has turned up, although Peter Jackson paid homage to the scene in his version of Kong.

The glow versions shown were released in the 70s but there were "long box" versions (similar to the Bride) released in the early to mid 60s.

7th Voyage of Sinbad was by far the best animation wise - one if the best adventure movies of all time.  I found anything that followed to be too dark and/or clearly of lesser quality.

It was one of the best Harryhausen movies but I love Jason and the Argonauts for it's story and for the fact Telos the Titan scared the little bunny droppings out of me as a child, I can still hear that sound as he came to life!
