The Giant Claw

One of the less embarrassing scenes from the 1957 film “The Giant Claw”, with Morris Ankrum, Jeff Morrow, Edgar Barrier and Mara Corday.

The cast were unaware of the terrible special effects and excessive amount of stock footage until they saw it on screen. Jeff Morrow told how he had to sneak out of a screening in his hometown because he didn’t want anyone in the audience to recognise him.
