godzilla: all monsters attack


During GMK shooting one of the staff guys brought his kid to the set. Many people do and so it was no big deal. However, this kid… He was like a Geiger counter. The closer he got to Godzilla the more he went off. Pull him back and he’d calm down, bring him close and he was screaming and kicking. His dad held him long enough to get a photo, while the entire staff howled with laughter. But the best was, when it was over and the kid was far enough away from Godzilla to calm down he said while gasping for air, ‘Mothra’s more agreeable.’” (x)

Tonight on Svengoolie, they wrap up their Godzilla Month with Ishirō Honda Godzilla’s Revenge (1969), aka All Monsters Attack.  This is the 10th film in the Godzilla series, the first specifically geared towards children – it even includes an anti-bullying message! – and is probably one of the weirdest.  Part of the weirdness comes from daydreams incorporating extensive stock footage of Ebirah, Horror of the Deep/Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster, Son of Godzilla, Destroy All Monsters, and King Kong Escapes.
