I saw a making of video recently in which he featured. I think it was something to do with Varan, can't really remember. Any way my point was they interviewed him and all those that were his assistants and it was amazing to see the high reguard his assistants still held him in to this day long after he had retired. What an amazingly long and Productive life he lived. He along with a handful of others set in motion a whole movie genre that still resonates with many till this day, having spawed one of the worlds most recognisable monsters and pushed the suffix zilla into every day use within the English language. Not many off us can say that.
