      Latitude Zero of 1969 was the first, and I believe only, Toho tokusatsu (effects-driven film) shot in English, for an English-speaking market, and only groomed for Japanese release afterward. So the “proper” version of the movie, and the longer cut (by 15 minutes), is the English language one. And it’s that one that we’ll primarily look at now, though in my zeal for completeness, did watch both cuts. The biggest difference between them – besides the psychological gulf that comes from watching a rinky-dink B-movie with subtitles, something that for most cinephiles insistently confers a presumption of class – is that the English version is a bit more expansive and clearer, with the connecting ideas given a bit more expression. The vibe one gets is that the producers assumed that American audiences needed a bit more coherence and storytelling rigor than the Japanese. Which is almost certainly true. Also, I just used the words “coherence” and “storytelling rigor” in the context of Latitude Zero, which is an outrageously daffy thing to have done.

    Joseph Cotton, Richard Jaekel and some of TOHO’s Greats are COOL, but for ME, the REAL STAR is Ceasar Romero in his “Post-BATMAN” Pure Super Villain BEST as “Malik”. (Oh, and Thanks For The Great Years of Awesome SPFX and Just Being ULTRA COOL, Teruyoshi Nakano-Sensei—RIP.)
