King G was Red, White and Blue?

Posted in Kaiju, The King of Monsters with tags , , , on April 8, 2019 by MONSTERMINIONS

This comes from Toho SFX Movies Authentic Visual Book, Vol. 20, King Ghidorah 1964. King G with blue-gold heads and necks, and red-white-blue wings. Later, script writer Keiko Suzuki suggested to Eiji Tsuburaya that the monster should be gold, hailing from venus! I do like this color variant though.

I’m not a fan of the Godzilla design, but Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah look inspired.

Criterion Kaiju

I’ve been watching the Criterion Showa series Toho films now streaming on FilmStruck. Eventually we’ll see them on DVD and Blu-ray. In all, there are 14 films. Only “Ebirah” and “Hedorah” are missing from the original Showa Godzillas. This is the first time I had seen the bizarre Son of Godzilla in the original Japanese anamorphic print. The ending of that film is surreal. The prints look superb. There are few supplements in the streamed versions.

RIP Haruo Nakajima!

The “Soul of Godzilla” and many other daikaiju of the Shōwa series has passed. Rest in Peace Nakajima-san. 1929-2017.
