Are there any gojira aficionados around? I wasn't aware of the fact that the first Godzilla movies were already produced in the mid-50s. It's fascinating to watch these plastic monsters afflicting Japanese cities. Btw, they owe their existence to the American atomic bombs (reminds me of Peter Parker who was bitten by a radioactive spider, if I'm correct, and turned into Spiderman). Today I watched the first 20 mins of "Rodan! The Flying Monster" (Sora no Daikaiju Radon, 1956). I really like that fast dramaturgical approach in Japanese monster movies, it takes only 5 mins until the first creatures appear on the scene.
