Throwback Thursday: Varan the Unbelievable – Main Title by Akira Ifukube (1958)

Varan the Unbelievable is a largely forgotten Daikaiju Eiga in the west, even though it was directed by Ishirō Honda (who also directed the original and classic Godzilla) and featured a score by the masterful Akira Ifukube (who scored the original Godzilla and many other films in the series).

The film may have it’s problems, but it’s opening music is FANTASTIC!
