TERUYOSHI NAKANO! The Great Toho SFX Director Is Back!

Today, I attended a small gathering with Teruyoshi Nakano, and as usual, it was extremely entertaining. There were a variety of topics, ranging from Nakano-san's almost being hired to work on Dino De Laurentiis' King Kong (1976) to the Century II felt-tip pens that Donald Trump uses to sign his executive orders (seriously).

After Nakano-san answered questions about his career, we all had dinner for a couple of hours and continued the discussion. A good chunk of the conversation focuses on the giant octopus scene in King Kong vs. Godzilla (1962).

Believe it or not, I still had a few items for Nakano-san to sign. Even he was amazed by it. These were an Espy (1974) DVD sleeve and a Godzilla 1985 (1984) program book. I've had both for a couple of years.

And that's a wrap! I got home not too long ago, and I'm exhausted. It'll be great to get some rest after a long day.
