Gappa trailer

Remember when discovering a trailer for a Japanese monster movie in ENGLISH was a rare thing? Both this movie and The X From Outer Space never got theatrical releases here in the States, but both have English trailers. Obviously done for marketing, but there was no way of knowing that back in the day.

Now we can see most of these rare trailers on youtube.  Takes a little of the fun out of it, doesn't it? 

I don't even know if this dub matches up with the one that we hear now. It sure is an exciting trailer, isn't it? It would have worked on me had I been old enough to see the film in the theater

The trailer's dub is from William Ross' people (that's him as the narrator), so it's the same STAFF as the one and as far as I know only English dub of the movie. Now, in my experience, the trailers were dubbed separately from the movie so it may not match exactly with the dialogue as it sounds in the movie.

that's actually what I meant. I think me wording was inelegant.
