The Man Who Was Godzilla

Haruo Nakajima was an actor and stunt man in Japan when he was tapped to play a new movie monster called Godzilla. It wasn't clear what the monster would be like, or how difficult making that movie would be. But Nakajima made the role his own, and ended up in a dozen Godzilla movies. Now 87 years old, he is quite proud of the work.
