YETI: THE GIANT OF THE 20TH CENTURY (1977)
This is basically an Italian take-off on KING KONG with a giant Bigfoot instead of a gorilla. Just like with KONG our giant monster finds a gal he likes to carry around but in this he also becomes pals with a little boy(who I think is the same boy from those Italian White Fang movies) and his dog and battles some kidnapping criminal-types. If you've ever seen a giant monster movie this one pretty much follows all the same beats that you would expect but it's just a little stranger. There's one part where our giant monster gets his nipple rubbed and they show it getting hard, the ending is very odd also where the lead gal just yells at Yeti-man and tells him to go home. Maybe the oddest thing about this though is that the Yeti gets a disco theme song sung by a group called The Yetians which I'm sure was a big hit. Check this out for some wacky laughs. It would make a great monstrous double-feature with THE MIGHTY PEKING MAN.
