Proteus attacks Hercules in HERCULES AND THE CAPTIVE WOMEN (1961) 

This scene of Proteus morphing into a lizard monster and subsequently changing into different animals, including snake or condor, in order to attack Hercules (Reg Park, below) is great. I know today some will find the fx goofy because it's not CGI but I love the lizard/monster suit. It's definitely one of the highlights of the movie and one of the best scenes of the PEPLUM genre.

A thousand times better than CGI in every respect.
