The Giant Gila Monster

The Giant Gila Monster is a 1959 monster movie.

GoogleVideo has it online:


1000 Misspent Hours points out "an especially perverse display of youth-culture cluelessness" but concludes "The Giant Gila Monster spends most of its time being exactly what it sounds like, and at that it does a pretty respectable job." Images Journal has an article that says the film
works to exonerate teenagers from the label of juvenile delinquent by illustrating that they are the virtuous alternatives to authority figures who are at best clueless and at worst willfully corrupt
and says that "One moral of the movie is that authority figures should learn to stop suspecting monstrous acts among teenagers and should look for the real threats in their society."
