Japanese film industry in the early 1960s

I'd like to learn about the Japanese film industry in the early 60s. Are there books or websites that talk about it? Google - as far as I know how to use it - hasn't given me what I want: a good history of the mentality behind the "Godzilla" movies. I want to know about the people who made the "Gojira" movies.

Check into the book list from StonebridgPress. I have their Dorama Encyclopedia, a guide to Japanese TV, and seems to me they have a lot of books on Japanese movies and their history.

Or check JDorama.com, which features forums specializing in Japanese entertainment info.

That's Gojira, baby, and it's all about the WMD.

Donald Keene is the most popular English-writing author on Japanese film. You should pick up his history of Japanese film.

Whoops, not Keene, but Richie.
