Very good article, Beth. I am sorry I missed hearing this on the radio. I'm excited to see our local San Diego station bring this up.
I am also a local San Diegan and, would you believe, the webmaster of the official Akira Ifukube website in English, www.akiraifukube.org. Ifukube created the musical score for the 1954 film, and he created Godzilla's roars and footfall sounds.
The film is a perfect window into the Japanese psyche and how it deals with disasters. Ifukube's score for this film also has a certain timeless relevance, and I wrote about that on my blog www.akiraifukube.blogspot.com.
Are you a fan of this fim's score, Beth?
