A hideous reptilian monster terrifies the poor, innocent people of Japan in this retro cult classic. The radioactive foot prints left by Godzilla (1954) is a very real and current event mirrored by the Americans atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945. Perhaps its just another example of the arts imitating life.
