Movie-A-Day #256: Eegah (1962).

September 13, 2011

Happy 72nd birthday to the larger than life Richard Kiel. The 7’2″ actor is best known for playing Jaws in the James Bond films, but before that he starred in a variety of monster or alien roles in a long string of B-movie cheapies, where his size guaranteed him plenty of work. Among the best/worst of these is the Arch Hall Sr./Jr. vehicle “Eegah” about a rock ‘n’ roll kid who discovers a giant caveman living in the desert near Palm Springs.
