Reporter Steve Martin (Raymond Burr) makes a stopover in Tokyo on his way to Cairo and is an eyewitness to the emergence of Godzilla. The Burr character has an observer role. Sometimes Japanese dialogue is translated by his guide, a security officer. Other times, when cast members are alone, the dialogue is dubbed into English. Morse, an editor by trade, did a pretty good job integrating the American footage with the Japanese footage. I prefer the Japanese version but this is not too bad. ” - marie_D
