It Came from Beneath the Sea (1955) - IMDb
After an encounter at sea with an unknown underwater creature, a naval commander works with two scientists to identify it. The creature they are dealing with is a giant, radioactive octopus that has left its normal feeding grounds in search of new sources of replenishment. As the creature attacks San Francisco, the Navy tries to trap it at the Golden Gate Bridge but it manages to enter the Bay area leading to a final confrontation with a submarine.

This gem would be interesting to see remade but only if it has the love story. I would probably have it be a giant squid instead of an octapus but a squid with an attitude. Peter Benchley did a giant squid movie back in 1996 called The Beast but it was more like a Jaws movie than something like this.
