    Description

    Rodan! The Flying Monster (Toho, 1957). Japanese B3 (15" X 21.5").
    Popular as one of the great Toho monsters among the likes of Godzilla and Mothra, the daikaiju Rodan arrived on the silver screen thanks to the famed director Ishiro Honda and stars Kenji Sahara, Yumi Shirakawa, and Haruo Nakajima as Rodan. Not just popular in its native Japan, Rodan! broke sci-fi box office records for several theaters during its opening weekend in New York. Writer Ken Kuronuma actually gained his inspiration for the story from a distinctly American event, known as the fatal 1948 Mantell UFO incident. This country-of-origin poster is a fantastic collage of imagery from the film, and also has the distinction of being a Heritage first. There has been touchup to the borders, a chip in the right border and background, and some pieces of paper loss at the top. Fine+ on Linen.
