Good movie. I thought it was way better than most of the old films from the 50's and 60's.

"Monsters are born too tall, too strong, too heavy, that is their tragedy."
Director Ishiro Honda (1911 - 1993)


But without Haruo Nakajima, there wouldn't have been the first Godzilla in 1954.

(he was the 'man in the rubber suit' that brought the creature to life, and suffered heatstroke because of it!)


A look at the monster, and the phenomena it gave birth to.

(quoted)
"This is Tokyo. Once a city of six million people. What has happened here was caused by a force which up until a few days ago was entirely beyond the scope of Man's imagination. Tokyo, a smoldering memorial to the unknown, an unknown which at this very moment still prevails and could at any time lash out with its terrible destruction anywhere else in the world. There were once many people here who could've told of what they saw... now there are only a few. My name is Steve Martin. I am a foreign correspondent for United World News. I was headed for an assignment in Cairo, when I stopped off in Tokyo for a social; but it turned out to be a visit to the living HELL of another world."
Opening voice over monologue by Raymond Burr in Godzilla: King of the Monsters
Toho production, released 1956

And then:

Original Godzilla suit actor Haruo Nakajima dies

The man who first bought the beloved and feared monster Godzilla to life has died, the film company behind the monster says.

Haruo Nakajima, who wore the Godzilla suit in 12 movies, died on Monday from pneumonia at the age of 88, it said.

In an interview this year Nakajima explained how the original 1954 costume was created from ready-mixed concrete and weighed up to 100kg (220lbs).

He said he studied animals in the Tokyo zoo to prepare for the role.
