Beast Meets West

'50s-era B-monster gets star treatment at last, but can't fight the Valley heat

"You know, it must be tough to fly a hot-air balloon when it's this hot out," remarked Paolo. I had never thought about it before, but it turned out he was right. Cameron Balloons of Bristol, England, had made a balloon that could circumnavigate the world, but they couldn't make one that could get off the ground against the heat of an October afternoon in Arizona.

After a while, Kevin the AMC flack came up and told us apologetically that there would be no rides today. "The thermal situation isn't the greatest," he said.
