His name might not automatically be familiar to you, but if you've seen films such as THE GREEN SLIME, DOGORA THE SPACE MONSTER, MOTHRA, and most especially GODZILLA VS. MEGALON, you've seen Robert Dunham. He was an actor in those movies, and many more shot in Japan. From what I know, he always struck me as a larger-than-life figure who transcended being just another Westerner in the crowd in those productions. How many people can say that, in addition to appearing in movies, they were a U.S. Marine, filmmaker, stunt driver, and writer?
This isn't a full-blown entry on Robert Dunham, though he undoubtedly merits such treatment. No, this is an entry to let you know that fans of Mr. Dunham now can friend a Facebook fan account created for him by his daughter Emiko. Already there is plenty of interesting content, and I am certain more will follow. Though Mr. Dunham left us in 2001, we can still honor his memory and his multi-faceted career. Here is your entry point to the official Robert Dunham account. Join us, won't you?
