Ishirô Honda

Highest Rated: 93% Godzilla (1954)

Lowest Rated: 25% Godzilla's Revenge (1969)

Birthday: May 07, 1911

Birthplace: Yamagata, Japan

Best known for bringing in a steady income to Japan's Toho Studios in the 1950s and 60s with a series of enjoyably campy sci-fi films featuring oversized monsters which wreak mass destruction upon the urban landscape. Still the most popular of these is Honda's (and the genre's) first and one of the best, "Godzilla" (1954). Honda followed its international success with "Rodan" (1957), "The Mysterians" (1959, a rather more serious effort), "Mothra" (1962), "King Kong vs. Godzilla," "Matango--Fungus of Terror" (both 1963), and the all-star "Destroy All Monsters!" (1966).
