Ishirō Honda (本多猪四郎)
May 7, 1911 – February 28, 1993

Inoshiro Honda is a common, and technically incorrect, Westernization of Ishirō Honda. Honda was a popular Japanese film director and screenwriter, known in the west for his kaiju and tokusatsu films, especially the Godzilla films.

The 'Inoshiro' spelling comes from a misreading of the kanji in his name; while this form of his name is common in film credits, using the Inoshiro form of his name can indicate that you are a n00b, or can be an inside joke by fans.
