Godzilla, Anguirus, And The Case Of The Missing Monster Suits

Yes, it's true! Somewhere out there, presumably still in Hollywood, are a Godzilla and an Anguirus costume waiting to be found.

The story of how these two Toho made monster suits came to reside on American shores is very interesting, and also filled with a bit of mystery.

Back in 1957 Toho was almost to the point of desperation, trying everything that they could to get their movie, "Godzilla Raids Again" released in the United States. A year earlier, the Americanized version of "Gojira", called "Godzilla: King of the Monsters", had done very well at the box office, and the studio wanted to act fast to get it's sequel in front of western eyes.
