We are very proud to present this holy grail item. Original Japanese paper from this extremely important movie is very scarce and very desirable. This pamphlet is as elusive as the yeti - many have spent many decades searching for it and not found it.
Godzilla is certainly the most important Japanese film to ever be made. In 1954, Toho studios introduced what evolved into the longest-running film series IN HISTORY.
Godzilla is the undisputed heavy weight champion and most famous big screen monster ever created.
It was not until three years later, in 1957 did Godzilla hit the American cinemas in a heavily edited version of the film including Raymond Burr.
The film is a trenchant anti-war and anti-nuclear testing screed that would have been way out of sync with the Cold War vibe of mid-'50s America. To our knowledge, this is the first time any original pamphlet has been offered for sale outside of Japan.
Many books have been written about the metaphorical nature of this landmark film. This is about nuclear Armageddon and a warning to everyone in the world about nuclear war and its devastating consequences.
Being screened less than a decade after two nuclear bombs dropped on Japan killed over 100,000 people in seconds, this film embodies some of Japan`s terrible experience at the end of World War II.
Please refer to the imagery as this is the exact item that is for sale. The pamphlet is over 67 years old, it is a historic and delicate item.
Certificate of Authenticity included.
