What Slays in Vegas...



This is described as lost test footage for a never made Willis O'Brien film about a giant mutated Baboon which rampages across Nevada.

What's really creepy are the two miniature elephantine trunks that wriggle on the creature's face. Not as an expert design as Ray Harryhausen was putting out then, but freaky in an unforgettable way.

The animation is credited to Pete Peterson. Read more here.

This would have been a cult favorite EASILY, had it been made. THE weirdest giant monster of the 50's. I'd love to know who actually created the monster, because those elepant appendages - WEIRD!
