I really enjoy the DreamWorks entries that you've written. smiley - biggrin

I've resisted putting in my oar too much – the way I see it, I've had my chance to write about DreamWorks Animation films my way, so it would be unfair if I interfere too much with what you've written as I find it enjoyable to see the films from an entirely fresh perspective.

Anyway, 'Golden Gate Bridge' should have a capital 'B' for Bridge. Incidentally, the Golden Gate Bridge scenes definitely owe a debt to that classic Harryhausen film 'It Came From Beneath the Sea' (1955) in which the bridge was threatened by a six-legged octopus (they couldn't afford another two legs). Curiously, the film crew were denied permission to film on the bridge because city officials thought that if people saw the bridge being attacked by a giant, mutant, nuclear octopus in a film, they would be too scared to ever use it again. They sneakily did a bit of filming on the bridge from the back of a van and used a model to complete the shots – and I can only assume no-one has ever used the bridge since?

Thanks for reading smiley - biggrin

Glad you're enjoying my fresh perspective on the films you have seen. The perspectives in your Entries have been helpful to me, too.

I've made that tweak. I wondered whether to include more details of the 1950s film references, but I do link to your Entry which covers that, so hopefully that's OK.
