All New High Adventure! Gigantic Heights of Terror! (July, 1966)









In our first feature, Tarzan gets the James Bond treatment as he goes up against an evil mastermind (and his tanks, apparently), who is hell bent on cashing in on the mythical lost city of gold. As for our second feature, Toho starts to get a little trippy with this tale of a leftover World War II experiment that mutates into a giant monster — just in time to take on the giant lizard, Baragon, currently terrorizing the countryside. Good and absolutely demented, sure, but nowhere near as much fun as the sequel, War of the Gargantuas.
