"Much has been written about the metaphorical nature of this landmark film. More than a simple giant monster movie, Gojira - better known as Godzilla to Western audiences - embodies the devastating reality of Japan's experience with the atomic bomb at the end of, and after, World War II. Conceived by producer Tomoyuki Tanaka and brought to life by special effects genius Eiji Tsubaraya, the dark and thoughtful film was realized on the screen by director Ishiro Honda. The picture was an international sensation, paving the way for more than two dozen sequels, making it one of the most successful franchises in movie history.
Original Japanese paper from this highly important movie is very scarce and highly desirable; the "Speed" version has been particularly elusive. This one is in an amazing condition, with only some light fold wear keeping it from an even higher grade. With a fabulous image of the King of the Monsters, this is one rarity you won't want to pass up. "-Source/ Credit Heritage Auctions
