The 'Giant Bat' from GOLIATH AND THE DRAGON (1960)

This movie is filled with special effects so choosing just one of the plethora of effects is difficult. One of my favourite is the Giant Bat seen while Goliath is on the quest for the Blood Diamond (below). When Goliath retrieves it, the creature appears and is on the attack. Many think the full creature is cheesy but I like it. Personally, the main problem is not the Giant Bat but the set which looks really fake, including shadows on the obvious backdrop (last image). The Giant Bat itself is cool. What's your favourite effects from this colourful PEPLUM?

I really like the dragon which was added for the U.S. version.
