here's the titular monster, as promised from the last post. Guiron. now, according to the late Noriaki Yuasa (best director of Gamera movies) his name is supposed to be "Guillon" as in "guillotine". due to an understandable translation error, we got Guiron. which sounds more monsterish to me.
here he is in action, slicing off one of Space Gyaos' wings. I forget if this part was in the US version, since they trimmed him carving Gyaos up like a salami. us kids back then weren't as tough, I guess.
he looks pretty pleased with himself, doesn't he?
thanks to my pal Ted Johnson for making the great looking DVDr of my VHS copy, where these frame grabs came from!
