According to the Internet Archive, the movie poster was made in 1971 by Hammer Films for a movie that was never produced. In 2007 a short video was created mashing up different films to create a faux six and a half minute short, akin to a serial from the 1930s. If you have 6.5 minutes to spare, you can find it here: https://archive.org/details/zeppelin_vs_pterodactyls_1936

and only 1 of them was actually any good - the original movie!

I liked the first 2. After that they should've been recalled. I was at the theater the night it premiered locally. There were cops everywhere when I pulled into the parking lot. I thought there must've been a riot in progress, so naturally I got out to get a new TV. Then I found out they were there just for the movie.  :-[

I was lucky that my friend's sister worked at the theater where it was showing. She let us in for free. I still feel like I paid too much to see it.

I never bothered to watch it. Superman III was bad enough.

AC/DC's Back In Black was 40 years ago today, too

Bloody hell! You have to be kidding. Its the only album of theirs that I have.

As a pal of mine once said - you only need one AC/DC album and you have them all.
