Monster of Monsters -
1954 Japanese film producer Tomoyuki Tanaka was
pondering the recent, accidental exposure of some
fishermen to radiation from an American H-bomb test
when suddenly he had an idea for a film. It would
feature an aquatic, lizard-like creature grown to
gigantic proportions by atomic radiation. His beloved
skyscraper high creation would eventually be featured
in over 30 films and be adorned by monster movie
fans around the world.

Dorado and Lost Gold
would like to know if there were any "Lost Cities
of Gold", like the fabled El Dorado?
