Gorgo (1961) - 3/19/13

From blu-ray.com:

Independent distributors VCI Home Entertainment have revealed that they are planning ot bring to Blu-ray director Eugène Lourié's Gorgo (1961), starring Bill Travers, William Sylvester and Vincent Winter. The preliminary release date set by the distributors is March 19th.

A volcanic eruption in the North Atlantic brings to the surface a 65-foot prehistoric monster. Two treasure divers capture the creature and take him to London where he is put on display in a circus. A scientist is thoughtful enough to point out that the sailors\' bonanza is only an infant, and that a full-grown specimen would be over 200 feet in height. Sure enough, Gorgo\'s mama comes thundering ashore, reclaims her offspring and heads back to sea - but not before she trashes a generous portion of London. The special effects in GORGO, provided by Tom Howard - two-time Academy Award winner, are truly admirable. The monster is quite ferocious - except when he wiggles his ears. Released by MGM in 1961.

Special Features:
"Ninth Wonder Of The World: The Making Of Gorgo" a new documentary by Daniel Griffith

Extensive Lobby Card & Poster Gallery

Time to retire my VHS. I can never have enough old monster films on BD.

I was just thinking about this release last week wondering when we'd hear something about it. Nice. Hopefully it turns out as nice as their BD of Dark Night Of The Scarecrow

I've gotten more serious about collecting older scifi and especially giant monster movies lately, looks like I need to add this to the list.
