If memory serves me correctly, my first introduction to Godzilla was GODZILLA vs. THE THING (aka MOTHRA vs. GODZILLA), which played at our local movie theater in the fall of 1964. It plays much like a fantasy movie, until of course, Gojira shows up! And who can forget the cute Ito sisters, better known as the pop stars, The Peanuts, as tiny fairies?

Shown today is the first of three parts of Time-Life's "bookazine" on the Toho sensation. It chronicles the fantastic saga of Godzilla through the years and is quite an impressive collection of material that includes plenty of photos from the various films.

(Continued tomorrow.)
