Signet Book of Movie Lists

Postby H-Man » Sun Aug 02, 2015 5:25 pm

Jeff Rovin seemed to be the king of movie-related books back in the late 70s, 80s and even the 90s. One of his many books was The Signet Book of Movie Lists, published around 1979. We had this book in my house and I used to read it all the time as a Young kid. There was one page dedicated to Godzilla. It listed all of Godzilla's films up through Godzilla vs. the Cosmic Monster. But the intriguing thing about the list is that Terror of Mechagodzilla wasn't included, but the last entry on the list was Space Godzilla (1979). I'm really curious as to what prompted him to include that in the filmography.

Well, that was the same year that A Space Godzilla got printed in Starlog. It wouldn't take much for that to get misunderstood or misreported, especially so long before the internet made fact-checking easy.
