Roused by nuclear testing, Godzilla wreaks destruction across Tokyo while the military prepares its horrific counterattack. Neither its massively edited American release nor the slew of sequels stands up to the Japanese original, which set the monster-movie standard while channeling the trauma of a nation still reeling from the atom bomb.

Godzilla will be introduced by Paul Wright, Ph.D.
