Sora no daikaiju Radon / Rodan (1956)

The King Brothers' theatrical release of Rodan was quite successful in its first run in the
United States. It was the first Japanese movie to receive general release on the West
Coast to make a strong showing at the box-office. It later received the biggest TV
advertising campaign given to a film to that date on New York's NBC flagship station
WRCA-TV, where a series of commercials running 10 to 60 seconds were shown for a
week before the film's opening.

Veteran writer Ken Kuronuma, who wrote the original story for this film, was
inspired by an incident in Kentucky in 1948, when Captain Thomas F. Mantell,
a pilot for the Kentucky Air National Guard, died in a crash while allegedly
pursuing a UFO. (If you want to know more about that read "Classic UFO Case
- UFO Shoots Down Air Force Fighter Over Kentucky?")

Name of the monster in Japan was "Radon". However, because there was a
soap by that name in the United States, when dubbed for the US market, they
transposed letters and changed the monster's name to "Rodan".

The original Japanese film's climactic monster invasion was filmed around, and
set in, Fukuoka, the largest city on Japan's southernmost island of Kyushu.
However, the American version relocated the action in the dubbing to another
city in Kyushu, Sasebo, perhaps concerned that their dubbing actors would
sorely mispronounce the word "Fukuoka" at inappropriate moments.

" Rodan is a supersonic movie for the jet age!"
