Haruo Hakajima the actor the was the original man the played Godzilla for many of the Godzilla films of the 50's, 60's & 70's. He did play as King Kong in 1976. Haruo Hakajima did do some acting outside of Godzilla, but most of those roles he dies in the films.
I did see some of the early Godzilla films as a child. At the time I was like "What is this stupid movie that is on?" I shorty found out on what it was call & showed some inserts in how big this franchises is throw out the world.
I did love all the films that I have seen up to now, but I know that there is so many that I have not seen myself. I just like to give my condolence to Haruo Hakajima Family & like to say thanks you for all your hard work in your movies.
