Mothra 1961 Furanki Sakai Fantasy Sci-Fi
Stars: Furanki Sakai, Hiroshi Koizumi, Kyoko Kagawa
Shipwreck survivors are found on Beiru Island, which was previously used for atomic tests. The interior is amazingly free of radiation effects, and they believe that they were protected by a special juice that was given to them by the island’s residents. A joint expedition of Rolisican and Japanese scientists explores Beiru and discover many curious things. These include two women only one foot high. Unscrupulous expedition leader Clark Nelson abducts the women and puts them in a vaudeville show. But their sweet singing contains a telepathic cry for help to Mothra, a gigantic moth worshiped as a deity by the island people. The giant monster heeds the call of the women and heads to Tokyo, wreaking destruction in its path.
Who would have ever thought that a giant moth would become one of Toho’s most endearing characters? In the years that would come, Mothra would make an appearance in seventeen films, including a bunch of Godzilla films. In the beginning the lepidopteran made its debut in this old-fashioned monster flick.
