Memorable Crowd Scenes

A party by a swimming pool, beauticians rolling around on the floor, a whole city block running from whatever. What crowd scene stands out in the experiments of MST3K?

Eegah! (1962) and the Sock Hop cotillion around the pool persists in my thoughts. The Cabbage Patch Elvis strumming a guitar and huge amplifiers a hop away from water intercut with boring exposition and Roxsy dancing unconvincingly is stuck there.

I don’t know: that party with the sheet cake and the brouhaha from Laserblast was pretty happening.

I’m going with Tina and her liquored up shenanigans with the French existentialists from Horror/Party Beach though. Featuring the My Three Sons band, of course.

Anything with Godzilla or Gamera, since there are inevitably throngs of people reenacting the end of the Bunny Attack scene of Monty Python and the Holy Grail (1975).

What made Gorgo stand out?

Some great riffs when he goes on a rampage:

Sir Elton
Sting
β€œI won’t marry you! Yes, you will!”
β€œI hope that’s not a mating call!”
β€œNo pants, baby!”

The great panicking crowd scenes are impressive.

Hopefully nobody was actually hurt during filming because it looked like chaos most of the time
