OK: Here's a couple of photos from films that invented their genres that might be a bit easy:
Film #1.
...
Film #1 is THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS?

Both correct!

BEACH PARTY created those wonderful 'beach' films of the 60's and THE BEAST FROM 20,000 FATHOMS started the 'giant radioactive monster on the loose' genre, which in turn spawned the Japanese kaiju series.

Whoops - and sorry: I didn't think through the complications created by posting two photos.

that scene alone would probably prevent it from being shown today.

What do you mean?  It was on IFC, I believe, a year or two ago.

Dude...Earth calling...they want you to come back. Lookingup

I guess I should have specified on broadcast or otherwise public television in a time since a bare breast was accidentally exposed during Super Bowl half-time that networks have been a little timid with regard to certain subjects for fear of government fines or other threatened retaliations.

Remember the public broadcast of Saving Private Ryan, uncut? I don't. Our local station opted not to show it in the face of the Super Bowl fiasco. I didn't disagree with them as I feel that it was not only a stupid move, but awfully damn egotistical of Spielberg to think his use of the word 'f**k' is art over anybody else's.

I'm certain there are cable stations that show unedited episodes of The Jeffersons, All in the Family, and other shows that would be too politically incorrect for today's so-called standards; there are other stations that won't show them unedited.

I said 'probably' as it is a supposition and I don't know for certain, but I would guess that some stations would be a little timid about a scene where a child is killed by a man hurtling him overhead and throwing him against a wall to presumably break his neck (I suppose).

You may want to look up 'probable' and 'absolute' in a dictionary.

Not sure about #1, but pretty sure #2 is BEACH PARTY.
Do I post 1/2 of a picture from a film that founded a half-genre, or what?   BounceGiggle  I'll defer to whoever can get #1.
Please post yer own pic, we can play two at once, or are we overextended?   Smile

I'm overextended--or at least, that's what SHE said.  Smile

Now, now!  Shouldn't give away the end of movies...  Wink  Hint: This is one of the most remarkable of all the films described as Neorealism.

Since nobody guessed, and not to make Peter Johnson crazed: GERMANIA ANNO ZERO is the film.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
