I absolutely love behind the scenes photos from Toho’s kaiju movies. Here’s a batch from King Kong Vs. Godzilla (1962).
Eiji Tsuburaya was the special effects genius on the early movies. Here he is with the picture’s leads.
Godzilla, Kong and Tsuburaya on the Mount Fuji set.
King Kong floats above the studio. Next, Godzilla and Kong among various bits of rubble.
Haruo Nakajima played Godzilla and Shoichi Hirose portrayed King Kong. Of course, the picture was directed by Ishirō Honda.
The US Blu-Ray of King Kong Vs. Godzilla is lovely, by the way.
