It Came from Beneath the Sea(Released in July/55),I had not seen since the 1960s,when it was a staple of TV fare.Of course when it has been that long,it is the outstanding moments you recall only,like the giant octopus itself and it grabbing on to the Golden gate bridge,etc.But watching it after all those years I kind of re-discovered the film all over again.It actually has a decent plot for a B picture,which stars lead Kenneth Toby(The Thing) and Faith Domergue(This Island Earth).There is a sub plot that is strictly adult(that I didn't recall),as when the submariner says to the captain that he was concerned about the effect of radiation and ones ability to have children,or the Captains own battle of the sexes with this"new breed of woman".Even so the movie still remains stuck in its' B picture roots,despite Harryhausens wonderful background work.
The plot is relatively simple.An atomic powered sub commanded by Capt.Pete Matthews(Toby) is patrolling the western Pacific area when it is suddenly followed by a huge object unknown.Eventually the unknown locks the sub in a vice like grip.After more than a few tries to get the sub going backwards and/or forwards,the Captain calls for them to surface.It does the trick and a diving crew upon inspection of the hull finds a huge mass stuck in one of the steering vents.They head to Pearl Harbour for repairs and the piece of material is examined by two experts,one being marine biologist Lesley Joyce(Domergue).
The conclusion seems to be that the substance jammed in the sub belongs to a much bigger creature,a giant octopus.It is theorized that this creature grew to such immense proportions due to Atomic testing around the Marshall Islands.The theory is expounded in detail to the military who have a hard time believing what they have heard.

Why is this $31.49 in Canada, when the very same release is $5.82 in the States? It really makes you think the government should be forced to jump in and look at stuff like this.

"For centuries the mind of man has learned comparative little of the mysteries of the heavens above - or the seas below"

"Since the coming of the atomic age, man's knowledge has so increased that an upheaval of nature would not be beyond his belief."

It is 1955 and the atom sub looks just like a ww2 diesel (at least it does not look like a cardboard mockup.) The latest sub is being chased by thing or things unknown; let's just say that "It Came from Beneath the Sea".

Standard sci-fi for the time we have the obligatory romance between the captain, Cmdr. Pete Mathews (Kenneth Tobey) from "The Thing From Another World" (1951), and Prof. Lesleyl Joyce (Faith Domergue) from "This Island Earth" (1955). What a ménage à trios and Prof. John Carter (Donald Curtis) from several "Science Fiction Theater" (1955-1957) TV episodes.

I just love sci-fi from this time because they inevitably depend of flame throwers to do the trick as in "The deadly Mantis" and "Them!"

Naturally no one believes them until they get eaten. Others think they have the situation in hand. Will we be able to handle "IT"? And will there be a next time?

Six tentacle monster by Ray Harryhausen; "Clash of the Titans" (1981).
Screen play by Hal Smith, and George Worthing Yates.

By A Customer on May 23 2004
Format: DVD
This was another movie where the budget was so small, Ray had to sacrifise the quality of the story for more cheaper production issues. The design of the creature was also limited, the budget being what it was, Ray only designed the octopus with six arms. and tried to maintain that the other two arms were underwater (Okay). They also never got permission to actually film in San Franciso, so they filmed all the out door scenes from the back of a bakery truck that drove all over the city and over the Golden Gate Bridge, the rest of the movie was shot either on other locations or on sound stages. As a result, this movie really was not much different then other B-movie monster pictures that were made at the time, and for Ray, to this day, he still maintains that the movie was not one of his better films.
