Dir. Ishiro Honda
Japan-USA 1954 | Black & white | 96 mins | Cert PG
Cast: Raymond Burr, Takashi Shimura
Made in the shadow of the newly developed hydrogen bomb it struck a chord of terror with audiences traumatized by recent events and fearing radiation poisoning. In clear and calm waters, a Japanese fishing boat sinks in flames as the sea suddenly erupts; a salvage vessel sent to the rescue disappears the same way; exhausted, incoherent survivors babble of a monster. Could it be... Godzilla.
