    Science on Screen: It Came From Beneath the Sea

    In director Robert Gordon's 1955 sci-fi adventure, a gigantic, irradiated octopus rises from the ocean's greatest depths to unleash a tidal wave of terror on San Francisco. Featuring fantastic stop-motion animation from special effects master Ray Harryhausen, It Came From Beneath the Sea is a classic from the Golden Age of monster movies and rarely seen in 35mm on the big screen. Before the film, University of Chicago biologist discusses the biology of B-movie monsters. In his pubished paper of the same name, Prof. LaBarerba explores issues ranging from why a real-life Mothra would have breathing problems to who would really win in a battle between an Incredible Shrinking Man and a giant tarantula!
