Toho kicked around a lot of strange ideas for Godzilla movies that were ultimately never used, but this one is probably the weirdest of them all. "Bride of Godzilla?" is a completely insane story concept from 1955 that would have involved the King of the Monsters in a subterranean lost world, filled with monsters, prehistoric animals, and even mermaids!
Godzilla and Anguirus would have appeared, along with a giant archaeopteryx and chameleon (possibly precursors for Rodan and Varan, respectively) as well as a mammoth and sea serpent.
The mermaids help out the heroes of the story; as a way of saying thanks the humans shoot one of their babies in the head.
The protagonist of the film is a scientist who made himself a robot daughter; his ultimate creation, however, is a huge robot woman designed as an amalgamation of said daughter and a woman who dumped him (kind of a sicko, huh?). The robo-gal clobbers all the monsters before Godzilla himself falls in love with her, carries her off to his underground lair, and cuddles up with her, not knowing that she's rigged to explode...
As completely crazy as this story sounds, I still think it's a blast. Would it have worked as a film? Who knows, but as a psychotic piece of storytelling that even the looniest fan-fiction couldn't top, it's hilariously entertaining.
What I'm REALLY curious about is... how was the "Bride" gonna look like in the movie itself?
Like, was she gonna be man or woman in a suit designed to look like a naked robot woman, or was it going to be an actual woman with, like, a flesh-colored skintight suit with some robotic details and all that? Or would they drop all prenteses and just use a naked woman?
I dunno, but one thing's for sure, she was probably gonna be a lot of people's waifu, lol.
ARGH! had Toho really designed something like this? Well, I don't know what to say, it's in the style of the craziest things done by them, that is a delirium! However, yes, I agree, it's a very funny delirium! Ah, I forgot, also your artwork is really fun!
Oy, I remember that. I was so delighted to be seeing a Godzilla movie in the theater (I was from a time when movie-release Godzilla films were all but unheard of), and then they kill Godzilla with seagull noises?
I've never gone looking for it, but I'd say it's doubtful; I don't even know if a full script was ever actually written or if it was just a story treatment that never advanced any further than a synopsis.
I've read about that one but I doubt it had any chance in hell of being made. That said I wouldn't be surprised if other artists have already mashed up these two properties, whether they were aware of this obscure story idea or not.
