Ishirô Honda

Highest Rated: 93% Godzilla (Gojira) (1956)
Birthday: May 7, 1911
Birthplace: Yamagata, Japan
Honda began directing in the early '50s, and scored an international success with his science-fictioner Gojira (aka Godzilla, King of the Monsters). Enormous low-budget monsters trampling Tokyo soon became Honda's specialty, with such beloved efforts as Rodan, The Mysterians, Varan the Unbelievable, Mothra, King Kong Vs. Godzilla, Ghidrah the Three-Headed Monster, Frankenstein Conquers the World, Destroy All Monsters!, Monster Zero, and War of the Gargantuas. Honda's films became increasingly oriented toward children, with former heavies Godzilla and Rodan battling other monsters to protect the Earth; his entertaining fantasies earned him legions of fans throughout the world.
