20,000 Million Miles to Earth – Watch it for free!

20,000 MILLION MILES TO EARTH (1957) is one of the early black-and-white science fiction films from Ray Harryhausen, the special effects expert who used stop-motion techniques to bring numerous monsters to life throughout his long career. Thanks to Google Video, you can watch this classic example of his work for free. It’s all about an Ymir (a creature from Venus) that hitches a ride to Earth on a space probe. You can see a bigger image of the video (with an option for full-screen viewing on your computer) here. If you like this one, you can find 125 titles available for viewing at the Science Fiction Theatre website, including 2001: A SPACE ODYSSEY, 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA, CHILDREN OF THE DAMEND, DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL, MEN IN BLACK, and many more.
