Description

    Rodan! The Flying Monster (Toho/DCA, 1957). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14"). After the enormous success of their maiden giant monster effort, Gojira (better known as Godzilla in the West) in 1954, Toho Studios knew they had a hit on their hands, so they quickly began looking for other dai kaiju (Japanese for giant monster) to thrill both Japanese and American audiences. One of the very first to Godzilla up was the giant, bird-like Rodan (the monster's name in the original Japanese version, Radon, was short for Pteranodon). Helmed by Ishiro Honda, whose work on Gojira had made that picture one of the greatest movies ever to come from Toho Studios, Rodan was another gigantic success, and the monster is still popular with fans today, more than a half century after his first appearance. This lobby set is extremely clean and attractive, displaying only some small corner bumps, pinholes on several cards, and a bend in the upper right corner on all the cards. Additionally, the title card shows some light edge wear and a small piece of tape on the back reinforcing a very small tear at the top border. Unlike many other card sets, all the cards in this set feature Rodan, with no "dead" cards to be found. For anyone who has ever thrilled to see a giant monster tear up a busy city, this lobby set is for you! Very Fine+.
