Rodan Promo

Ishiro Honda realizes the start of the kaiju eiga legacy with Rodan [1956]. Anguiras appeared in Godzilla Raids Again [1955]. Rodan is the first monster to receive its own film since Gojira [1954]. Rodan is by Toho, producer Tomoyuki Tanaka, director Ishiro Honda, special effects director Eiji Tsuburaya and composer Akira Ifukube.

I remember it well, SFF. Along with Godzilla and Mothra, Rodan stands out. I always thought the audio effects used in these films as quite distinctive. Thanks, my friend.

The sounds effects really are extraordinary. Akira Ifukube had a lot to do with that, but the kaiju eiga pictures are indeed uniquely wonderful.
