Giant monsters in San Francisco

Author August Ragone (EIJI TSUBURAYA: MASTER OF MONSTERS) is hosting a giant monster film festival this August 21-23 in San Francisco, "Godzilla And The Monsters of Mass Destruction." The guest of honor is none other than Haruo Nakajima, the man who was inside the Godzilla suit from 1954 to 1972 (and also played Rodan, Baragon, and many others).

Over three days, they'll screen ten classic Toho monster movies in 35mm in five double-features, and Mr. Nakajima will appear live onstage to talk about his experiences making those films. Details found at August's blog, The Good, the Bad, and Godzilla:
