Bert I. Gordon was an icon to me for all of my movie going life. I was first introduced to his work at the age of 8 when I saw "The Amazing Colossal Man" on KHQ TV Creature Features, and I was hooked from then on.
Gordon made many films I cherish including "The Magic Sword", "Earth Vs. The Spider", "War Of The Colossal Beast", "Tormented", "Attack Of The Puppet People", "Picture Mommy Dead" and the list goes on and on.
Gordon did all of the special effects foe his films as well, and while they were cheap they never failed to entertain. Bert I. Gordon passed away on March 8th, 2023 at the age of 100.
I have read some pretty awful stories about his movies today but I can tell you I loved all of his movies even "King Dinosaur" and "Serpent Island". Godspeed Mr. B.I.G.
