GORGO 1961
















Gorgo is an attempt to make a Japanese-style “giant reptile” flick in an English setting. The story begins when underwater volcanic activity in the Irish Sea brings forth a 65-foot monster called Gorgo. Enterprising Joe (Bill Travers) and Sam (William Sylvester) capture the beast and transport it to London, where Gorgo is put on display as a seaside carnival attraction. This proves to be a major mistake when Gorgo’s even larger mother lumbers to the surface in search of her cute li’l baby. In short order, London is trampled and trashed. (ROTTEN TOMATOES.)

    No, but it might be a crime to like GORGO more than GROGNON.

    Here’s one especially for you and your post.

    Monkey Man

    I’m a fleabit peanut monkey
    All my friends are junkies
    That’s not really true

    I’m a cold Italian pizza
    I could use a lemon squeezer
    What you do?

    But I’ve been bit and I’ve been tossed around
    By every she-rat in this town
    Have you, babe?

    Well, I am just a monkey man
    I’m glad you are a monkey woman too

    I was bitten by a boar
    I was gouged and I was gored
    But I pulled on through

    Yes, I’m a sack of broken eggs
    I always have an unmade bed
    Don’t you?

    Well, I hope were not too messianic
    Or a trifle too satanic
    We love to play the blues

    Well I am just a monkey man
    I’m glad you are a monkey, monkey woman too, babe

    I’m a monkey
    I’m a monkey
    I’m a monkey man
    I’m a monkey man
    I’m a monkey…

    He certainly is proving himself to be some sort of missing link.
