USA 1954 - Vintage original 41 x 27" (102 x 68 cm.) one sheet poster, USA. Takashi Shimura, Akihiko Hirata, Akira Takarada, Raymond Burr, dir: Ishiro Honda, Terry Morse; Trans World Release, USA. The stupendous and spectacular USA release poster for the re-constructed 1956 American release version of the 1954 Japanese film. Whether one sees the original version or the American, the story is the same, and so popular in these 1950s movies featuring gigantic villainous monsters. Godzilla, or Gojira as he is originally called, is a monster reptile created by nuclear test fallout who seeks vengeance on the world. Stop-motion technique was considered but proved to be too costly and would take too long, so a man in a 200-pound suit was employed instead. To make production run smoothly, the entire film was storyboarded -- a first in Japanese cinema. The film was immensely popular, including in America in its original form, but in 1956, Trans World picked it up and added scenes in English featuring Raymond Burr to make it more accessible to American audiences. Poster is professionally mounted on linen and very clean. There is minor touch-up at the folds and a few minor tears in the blank white margins with have been addressed. ABOUT FINE.
