The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms. 1953.

After arctic atomic testing, a prehistoric beast awakens and goes on a rampage heading towards New York City.

Another classic 50s movie with animation by Ray Harryhausen and is able to make the beast look real up close and from a distance, RKO released The Thing From Another World with their arctic expedition movie but Warner Bros kicked itt up a notch by creating a monster that leaves it's dorment area and head to a populated city where a young Lee Van Cleef manages to be a great sharp shooter. The acting in this is decent, with someone seeing a monster, no one believing him and then his story is believed then mass hysteria. One film I never appreciated years ago but now a firm favourite.
