First Grave of Godzilla

Final night of G-Fest was the film that started it all, the original Gojira (1954). I have always wanted to see the original version on the big screen and it really was an awesome evening! Amazing how terrifying the original Japanese version is compared to the neutered US version. Nice to close out G-Fest on a high note!

Finished up Five Graves to Cairo (1943) thanks to TCM & my DVR. This is Billy Wilder's second major feature film and he really shows the signs of brilliance. The story revolves a British soldier who becomes a reluctant spy disguised as a waiter at desert inn in Egypt currently housing Rommel & his German soldiers. Film offers plenty of suspense as well Erich von Stroheim as Rommel. Solid.
