Statue Of Liberty - Symbol Of Destruction In Sci-Fi Flicks/Books

I have noticed the use of the Statue Of Liberty as a symbol of destruction in many places, probably for the first time in the first Planet Of The Apes film. Who can forget Charlton Heston at the end, yelling at the top of his lungs, "You maniacs! You blew it up! D*mn you! D*mn you all to hell!" Recently a destroyed Statue Of Liberty has been used in the new monster movie Cloverfield (which I hope to see this weekend). Well, somebody has taken it upon themselves to gather a whole set of images of the Statue of Liberty from magazines, films and books - it's quite amazing to see them all in one place!
