Godzilla vs The Smog Monster
Godzilla: the world's largest ecologist. Play the song!
The situation is looking bleak for Japan, everything is polluted or dying and the full horror of late 60's music is upon them. Researchers are trying in vain to find solutions to the many problems. Dr. Yano might be a brilliant scientist, but he can do little more than join in when everyone cries out, "We're doomed!" While diving (to mourn the destruction of coastal ecosystems) he encounters the evolving menace called Hedorah. Poor little Ken, standing alone on the rocks and calling out to his father, is one of the only poignant moments in what was intended to be a meaningful film. After this it gets silly.
