    Description

    Godzilla very fine folded unrestored U.S. style "B" 3-sheet poster. (Toho, 1954/ U.S. first-release 1956) U.S. 41 x 79 in. three-sheet poster style "B" (in two sections as printed). "Gojira" (U.S. release-title "Godzilla") is not just the first Japanese monster movie to earn a worldwide following, it is considered by old-school fans and historians to be the best by far, and it spawned a cycle of dozens of sequels and spinoffs that continue to this very day, some 58 years later. To make this fantastic tale of the adverse effects of atomic-bomb residual radiation on a certain hibernating dinosaur more accessible to English-language viewers, the distributors inserted new footage of TV's "Perry Mason" Raymond Burr as a foreign journalist. This unused, folded (as issued) unrestored style "B" (by far superior in its depiction of Godzilla to the style "A") is quite likely the finest example extant. Traces of handling from years of storage with very minor fold-junction openings; else, very fine.
