Monster of the Day #1607

Literally a giant in his field. Along with Honda, Ifubuke and Tsuburaya, this gentleman influenced my life more than I’ll ever really understand. RIP.

  • Nakajima was something else. Other actors might play the role, but there’s only one King of the Monsters.

    Rest easy, Nakajima-San. You’ve earned it.

  • Eric Hinkle

    I think that everyone involved with the original ‘Godzilla, King of the Monsters’ is gone now, right?

    R.I.P. My hat’s off to anyone Nakajima. The suit was heavy enough on land but I’d heard in the water it soaked-up so much it weighed a ton…

  • Rock Baker

    Some cast members are still with us.

  • Eric Hinkle

    Who exactly? Akira Takarada?

    Hmm, according to Wikipedia he is still with us.

  • The Rev.

    You can all imagine how saddened I was by this.

    I got to meet him many years ago at G-Fest. I still have the poster he and Ken Satsuma signed for me. I’ll never forget it.

    Rest well.
