TCM Drops The Ball


I appreciate that TCM occasionally airs these wonderful films. I do wish they would employ someone who knows the history of this genre. The gentlemen who introduced it on 6.28.15 were an embarrassment.
And as for airing that atrocity with Raymond Burr and calling it the OG Godzilla...sigh...

I don't think the hosts said anything wrong, they just didn't delve into anything about the film, if that is your complaint.
In the states, the Burr Godzilla is the original.

reply

Yea, I guess that is correct. Probably was years before the NON Burr version of Godzilla was released in USA. So, Burr was the Original Godzilla movie in The States, but I can also understand the original posters comment.
Many don't realize what it was like years ago, with 3 TV channels and no Internet. There wouldn't be so many foreign movies floating around.

P.S. Something about Nick Adams, weird guy, but I love watching him.

Nick Adams is even better in Frankenstein Conquers the World.
