''Godzilla: King of the Monsters'' (''Kaiju-Oh Gojira'' in Japan) is the 1956 Americanized version of the original ''[[Film/{{Gojira}} Godzilla]]''. New footage featuring Raymond Burr was shot by Terry Morse, and dubbing was done only for scenes where the Japanese characters appear without Burr's character. While the film downplayed the symbolism of the original, it still retains some of Dr. Yamane's lines about the Hydrogen Bomb being responsible for Godzilla's existence. Despite the fact that it runs at twenty minutes shorter than it's Japanese counterpart, ''Godzilla: King of the Monsters'' is actually one of the more tastefully done Americanizations of a Godzilla film, especially in regards to the fact that this was the first one. If it weren't for this film, then Godzilla would never have become popular in the west, and this page probably wouldn't exist.

* ScifiWritersHaveNoSenseOfSize: A rather noticeable example here; during Godzilla's rampage through Tokyo, Steve Martin watches from a news building, reporting what he sees using a tape recorder, and the film shows this as if he's looking down at the destruction. Considering Godzilla is 400 feet (40 stories) in this version, and Steve is looking ''down'', we're led to assume that he's in a rather tall building. Then, once Godzilla arrives at said building - leading to Steve's OhCrap moment - Steve looks ''up''. Either the building shrunk or Godzilla got even bigger.
