Summary
"The roaring granddaddy of all monster movies. It's also a remarkably humane and melancholy drama made in Japan at a time when the country was still reeling from nuclear attack and H-bomb testing. Its rampaging radioactive beast, the poignant embodiment of an entire populations fears, became a beloved international icon of destruction, spawning more than twenty sequels and spinoffs...The original 1954 Japanese version is presented here, along with Godzilla: King of the Monsters!, the 1956 'Americanized' version."--From publisher's description
