In this latest Intermission episode Lee and Leah are back together to talk about one of the first (if not the actual first) atomic monster films from the 1950s, "The Beast from 20,000 Fathoms" (1953), directed by Eugène Lourié. Much of the conversation revolves around the fantastic Ray Harryhausen special effects work and if the rest of the movie manages to live up to that. How is this both not based on a Ray Bradbury story, but kind of is at the same time? What the hell is Lee Van Cleef doing here? Why does Leah's cat keep butting in on the recording? All this and more. Listen before the Rhedosaurus destroys the podcast like it was some lighthouse or a diving bell!
