This is a pitiful attempt by the Japanese monster-movie industry to adapt the Frankenstein monster to their milieu. The results are laughable. The Frankenstein monster's heart is transported from Nazi Germany to Japan during WW II, and it is caught in the atomic blast that destroyed

Hiroshima. Subsequently, it is eaten by an unwitting Japanese youngster who grows into a giant with a large forehead and ugly, nasty teeth. Dressing himself like a cave man, he goes to live on Mount Fuji where he fights off a giant Japanese monster, Baragon (which looks a little like Godzilla).

This creature was originally designed as a giant octopus, which can be seen in some production stills that pop up occasionally. American actor Adams actually acted his scenes during the production, as opposed to the usual Japanese practice in which the American actor is hired after the fact and

his scenes inserted later for US release (as was done with Raymond Burr in GODZILLA). He plays the usual lame scientist who's around to help rebuild Hiroshima.
