I've watched that movie twice since Christmas.

Jeez, I remember when I used to, I dunno, go outside and stuff?...

I got two dozen Godzilla-type movies for Xmas. Big G. and Gamera mostly. This one wasn't among them.

{!#%@}, just noticed this was released in 1962. Don't know when it was shown in the US, but I was in high school. (Class of '69. Yeah, they gave us official "69" sweaters. Loved that!)

Gamera!!! First time I saw Gamera was on MST3K.

Gamera! After reading the first post in this thread last night, I went to Youtube and watching this movie:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lr5Oh4TpChg

I love the "acting" in this movie! The American commander is the best. Check him out: https://youtu.be/lr5Oh4TpChg?t=10m21s He's amazing.

You wrote that script, didn't you?

Radio operator : The giant turtle has made its appearance"
Commander : "Find out what's going on"

(Obviously the giant turtle has made its appearance....duh!)

"Okay. Operator, had me da mike."
"Yes, sah."
"Calling all planes, fighter planes...[pause]...based in the awtic ocean. This is your commander calling. Over."
"This is the strategic figher. Over."
[Reading directly from the script, apparently] "There's an unidentified a-craft flying on course eight four point two seven degrees North latitude, and one seven six point five eight degrees East longitude. Intercept...[pause]...and escort it to the base. If it resists, shoot it down."
"Roger."

Haha! "Hi, all you planes out there, fighter planes. This is your commander calling. I don't know what my name is, but neither do you so don't worry about it. Escort an unknown craft to the base. What base? I don't care! Find a base somewhere! But be careful, 'cause it has anti-electric wave paint on it or something."

This might have been the script that inspired me to write my own movie in elementary school.

I watched the movie segment. It was excellent.

Commander : "Have you spotted anything on your radar screen?"
Soldier :" "No sir. It must be coated with anti...[pause]...electric wave paint, sir."

At no point does the commander wonder why someone would break in to their command centre and paint the radar screen with anti electric wave paint. :D

However, I am impressed with some of the special FX. I assume these are cheap movies. I'm not sure how they got the model fighter aircraft to fly in clouds that moved. They must have been fairly big models.

Haven't seen the clip............would I be embarrassed I watched it???

I take it the reference to being painted by anti-electric wave paint was that it is painted on Godzilla? Maybe that is a continuity error from the Mecha-Godzilla movie? I mean the movie falls apart on that detail.

Never in error. No apologies. You got some rigid {!#%@} there Matt. Relax and have more fun.

Maybe "anti-electric wave paint" was mistranslated and should have said "sun screen"?

Damn, I remember hearing something about their models a long time ago, but I can't remember exactly what it was. It crept up in the back of my mind when I saw the movie. Those models for the American planes were not actually authentic designs, and yet they looked like they ought to be. They also had a strange similarity to the cardboard tubes you get from the centre of toilet paper rolls. I wish I could remember where I saw the discussion. It feels like it was from a documentary about the early Japanese monster movies, and the model makers who worked on them...but I can't be sure.

Anyway, back to the planes. Here's a comment I found on one website: http://www.1000misspenthours.com/review ... gamera.htm

...The movie begins...with a scientific expedition to the frozen wastes above the Arctic Circle. But at first, the movie appears to have little interest in the expedition. It’s too busy setting up a dogfight between a formation of swept-wing jet bombers (no country of origin is given, but the planes have a distinctly Soviet look to them) and a pair of American interceptors sent to shoot them down (the American planes look like a cross between the F-106 Delta Dart -- the most high-tech fighter in the U.S. inventory in 1965 -- and the Swedish Saab Draken fighter-bomber... very strange)....

Very strange indeed.

Do you remember the Russian Jets in "Ice Station Zebra"? I thought that was a pretty cool SPX before computers. I guess they simply stuck models on sticks and shoved the sticks through holes in a green screen and turned the models as they went around corners. It worked for me.

Tamiya is an interesting company. It started as a 1946 lumberyard. In the 1948 Yoshio Tamiya started to make wooden model modern ships. Mr Tamiya makes more money from the models and closes the lumberyard. He converts to plastic in 1960. In 1961 he wants to put a small electric engine in a plastic model panther tank and keep it as small as possible so he invents the world standard Military Modelling scale of 1/35. The existing English scale is "O" or 1/32.

Fifty years later, every leading model tank manufacturer now works in 1/35.

Yoshio Tamiya, beat England in the scale war on his own, simply by his enjoyment making models.
