Ishiro Honda’s Godzilla is 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 population’s
fears, became a beloved international icon of destruction, spawning more than
twenty sequels and spinoffs. This first thrilling, tactile spectacle continues
to be a cult phenomenon; here, we present the original, 1954 Japanese version,
along with Godzilla: King of the Monsters!, the 1956 American reworking
starring Raymond Burr (Rear Window).
