RODAN (1956)/WAR OF THE GARGANTUAS (1971) - DVD
RODAN (1956) Prehistoric egg hatches a monstrous flying creature that's smashing up building like nobody's business. From Toho Studios, shortly after the creation of the Godzilla series. Lots of early Toho giant-monster-sized fun!
WAR OF THE GARGANTUAS (1966/1970) American version featured scenes with actor Russ Tamblyn. I saw this in the theatre back in 1970 with the neighborhood gang. I was eleven years old, and there wasn't a better movie than this one for an eleven year old! A steamer ship is attacked by a giant octopus and a huge 100 foot green monster comes out of the sea and fights the octopus. The green monster then destroys the ship and just about everything and everybody in its path for most of the movie. He even eats a woman and spits out her dress! But, he has a brown brother that is good and the two end up fighting like some cosmic monster wrestling match. One of the most exciting and fun Toho monster movies. A vague sequel to FRANKENSTEIN CONQUERS THE WORLD. Made in 1966 in Japan. Americanized and released in the United States in 1970. This double feature sports both Japanese and American versions of both films. Plus a documentary called BRINGING GODZILLA DOWN TO SIZE.
