"Godzilla Raids Again" released 1955

Following on the heels of the success of "Godzilla", Toho managed to film and release "Godzilla Raids Again" in less than six months after the original release. It would be May 1955 before American audiences would get to see it as "Gigantis, the Fire Monster". WTF?

It is the only film in which Godzilla's spines do not glow while he is releasing his radioactive breath.  It is also the only Godzilla film in which George Takei (Lt. Hikaru Sulu from Star Trek) appears.
