I know, haha! As far as giant monsters go, that movie's one of the worst. Might be the worst. Except for that giant vulture. I forget the name.

For Mark S: I think the dragons they have in their parades give them a more open attitude toward movie monsters like that one.

No, it wasn't a Japanese studio. It looked nowhere near as good as Rodan, either.

Maybe. But very few of the giant monster movies in Japan revolve around dragons. And dragons also play a part in a lot of European myths. But the "giant monster on a rampage" movies pretty much died out in the West in the '50s, but remained hugely popular in the East. I'm just not sure why that is.

It isn't like there wasn't a market for them. Growing up, my friends and I loved GODZILLA, ULTRAMAN, LAND OF THE GIANTS, etc.
