THE GORGON - James Bernard - "Gorgon Theme" (1964)

"The Gorgon" had a reoccurring theme that was played every time a new victim was about to get turned to stone. Once again composer James Bernard was the man responsible for the eerie sounds as he would continue to do for years!!!

The first victim of "The Gorgon" is a model!! She's going to be more likely to become a sculpture rather than a painting!

Prudence Hyman as "The Gorgon" looks kinda scary even though she was only a mere 5'4" Tall. Seems like the victims would have been looking right over the top of her head most of the time, instead of into her eyes!! Christopher Lee was over a foot taller than her, maybe that was why he didn't think she was a very frightening presence!

I sat here and watched this movie thinking the whole time, that Richard Pasco was Tommy Kirk, and I just couldn't remember that Tommy was in this film! Good trick!!

PLaying on my computer as I type this -- by the Electric Light Orchestra: "Turn to stone ... ever since you've been gone ... I've turned to stone."
