What if Godzilla vs Gigan didn't have any stock footage.

Discuss the original series of Godzilla films! From "Terror of Tokyo" to Puppy-faced Super-hero, the Showa Era had something for everyone!

GODZILLA VS. GIGAN is the second Godzilla movie that I had ever seen. And it came around at a time when I thought there weren't any more Godzilla movies (the first one I saw was GODZILLA 1985). So, it has an enormous amount of sentimental value to me. Lots of warm memories. My favorite scene is when Godzilla gets back up, after being revived by the energy of the Godzilla Tower, pounds his chest ("GODZILLA'S STRONG AGAIN!") and knocks the crap out of Gigan with his tail! That part gets me every time.

As far as the issue of stock footage is concerned, yes it does contain more than any other Godzilla movie. It barrows entire scenes from different movies (GODZILLA'S REVENGE does this too, but atleast it's all a dream), and uses tons of day-for-night shots. With the exception of MEGALON, GODZILLA VS. GIGAN is probably the cheapest of all of the Godzilla movies. And the stock-Ifukube tracks, well, if I had to name the number one thing that I love about these movies, it's the music. A lot of times, the Akira Ifukube (or Masaru Sato) scores make the movie for me. Here, it fits the film just fine.

Part of me does wish that GODZILLA VS. GIGAN had more new scenes, and less stock footage (the oil refinery sequence only hints at what Nakano could do). I think that it would get alot more credit from fans than it does now. Still, I love it the way it is, so I'm not exactly losing sleep over it either.

Actually, that was Rodan's theme that was re-worked from Varan. And Ifukube never "recycled" any of his themes, so much as he re-worked them for different films. Case in point, in Ghidrah The Three Headed Monster, he took both Godzilla and Rodan's theme and combined them so that it made one, rousing piece that complimented the battles very nicely. Another example is Mechanikong's theme from King Kong Escapes. That piece originated in King Kong vs. Godzilla, but then he combined it with a piece he did for Frankenstein Conquers The World,[i/] that would later be carried over to [i]Destroy All Monsters. Yeah, Ifukube did use alot of his music over in his fantasy films, but he did it creatively. As far as the film in question is concerned, it's all stock music, but it's incorporated into the film well enough. Alot of those themes sound more familiar to me in Gigan than they do in the films they were originally composed for!
