When seventeen vessels blow-up and sink nearby Odo Island, Professor Kyohei Yamane, his daughter Emiko Yamane and the marine Hideto Ogata head to the island to investigate. They witness a giant monster called Gojira destroying the spot. Meanwhile Emiko meets her boyfriend, the secluded scientist Serizawa. He makes her promise to keep a secret about his research with oxygen. She agrees and he discloses the lethal weapon Oxygen Destroyer that he had developed. When Gojira threatens Tokyo and other Japanese cities, the army and navy are incapable of stopping the monster.  Emiko discloses Serizawa’s secret to her lover Ogata. Now they want to convince Serizawa to use the Oxygen Destroyer to stop Gojira.

When viewing this film in its original form, it not only looks more like a Golden Age Toho fantasy, but it’s a powerful masterpiece, as it stands in the history of world cinema.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters (1956)

Stars: Raymond Burr, Takashi Shimura, Momoko Kochi  

When American reporter Steve Martin investigates a series of mysterious disasters off the coast of Japan, he comes face to face with an ancient creature so powerful and so terrifying, it can reduce Tokyo to a smoldering graveyard. Nuclear weapon testing resurrected this relic from the Jurassic age, and now it’s rampaging across Japan. At night, Godzilla wades through Tokyo leaving death and destruction in his wake, disappearing into Tokyo Bay when his rage subsides. Conventional weapons are useless against him; but renowned scientist Dr. Serizawa has discovered a weapon that could destroy all life in the bay — including Godzilla. But which disaster is worse, Godzilla’s fury, or the death of Tokyo Bay?
