Directed by Ishirō Honda, with special effects by Eiji Tsuburaya, this Toho classic features some fine supersonic destruction, two Rodans, some cool giant bugs and a rather touching monster ending set during a volcanic eruption triggered by missiles.

Here is a whole bunch of posters for the kaiju-pterosaur flick for you to enjoy…
