“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again, because there is no effort without error and shortcoming; but who does actually strive to do the deeds."

Yeti: The Giant of the 20th Century (1977)
aka Giant of the 20th Century
Despite being overlong, this is a pretty solid and entertaining B-movie, rather than the crap I usually watch. Made in Canada with an all-Italian crew, the abominable snowman called "Yay-Tee" is 80 feet tall - though sometimes much smaller; he varies - and makes laughably overwrought faces as he stomps Toronto. After getting thawed (which takes forever), he falls in love with a girl and manages to get a nipple-tweak(!) before his King Kong-inspired rampage that's badly enough done that he's transparent through parts of it. Oh, and he breaks a man's neck with his toes. All in all, a pretty good time.
