Toho Special Effects Official Visual Book vol.19 Godzilla 1955
TOHO SFX MOVIES AUTHENTIC VISUAL BOOK” is a series focused exclusively on one character (mainly one monster) from one work, which is edited into one volume every time.
Large pictures of the character make it possible for readers to enjoy the texture, subtlety of the design and design details of the character. In the meantime, as there have been a lot of books
written on the description of each work, such description in this book is limited to a minimum amount.
In this issue, the second Godzilla is focused which appeared in "GIGANTIS,THE FIRE MONSTER"(1955),the second film of the Godzilla series. It has the slenderer body than that of the first Godzilla. We hope you enjoy the design of Godzilla 1955 with these snapshots and still pictures taken during the shooting of the film.
Postscript. This movie was shown in the United States in 1959,but the title at that time was "GIGANTIS,THE FIRE MONSTER"
