"Special" Effects

I got a book on special effects from the library, and stumbled across this gem from the dying days of back-projection - The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms (1953)

I think we REALLY have to get at least one shot into the trailer, what with it meant to be a low budget B-Movie and all.

Plus, it's a pretty simple effect - render the projected footage, run it through a couple of after-effect filters, and then project it onto the virtual glass.
