Lowest Rated: 20% Godzilla 1985 (1984)

Birthplace: New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada

A commanding, heavy-set player, Raymond Burr first made an impression in vicious roles in the Anthony Mann films noir, "Desperate" (1947) and "Raw Deal" (1948). With his dark hair, prominent eyebrows and stern voice, Burr made an ideal villain. An economical actor, he brought an aura of authority to many of his best roles, whether it be the attorney prosecuting Montgomery Clift in "A Place in the Sun" (1951) or the white-haired, methodical murderer Lars Thorwald in Alfred Hitchcock's masterful "Rear Window" (1954).

QUOTES FROM Raymond Burr CHARACTERS

Steve Martin says: Nature has a way sometimes of reminding man of just how small he is. She occasionally throws up the terrible offspring of our pride and carelessness to remind us of how puny we really are in the face of a tornado, an earthquake or a Godzilla. The reckless ambitions of man are often dwarfed by their dangerous consequences. For now, Godzilla, that strangely innocent and tragic monster, has gone to earth. Whether he returns or not or is never again seen by human eyes, the things he has taught us remain.

Barney Chavez says: I'm strong, powerful.The jungle's my house - it belongs to me!

Steve Martin says: Im afraid my Japanese is a little rusty.

Steve Martin says: Godzilla has turned the heart of Tokyo into a sea of fire! Beneath the flames, thousands lie dead or dieing.
