On the QT: During the late 1950s, lowbrow auteur Bert I. Gordon (a/k/a Mr. B.I.G.) specialized in giant monster movies. In 1965 he threw carefree, dance-crazed kids into a (vast) rethinking of H.G. Wells’s Food of the Gods and called it Village of the Giants. This clip features the thumping twang of Jack Nitzsche’s death-proof “The Last Race”, with a rather dorky Beau Bridges getting down, much to the chagrin of Tommy Kirk and Johnny Crawford. The fleshy blonde with the great tan is Joy Harmon, better known as the sudsy ‘Loo-ceel’ to all you Cool Hand Luke fans.
