Movie Poster Spotlight :: Ghidrah: The Three-Headed Monster!

Ghidrah the Three-Headed Monster a/k/a San daikaijû: Chikyû saidai no kessen (Toho/Continental Distributing 1965) After another rousing chorus of "Mothra, oh Mothra, please wake the hell up!" the somnambulant mutant caterpillar from Infant Island must convince fellow kaiju-eiga Godzilla and Rodan to put their differences aside and team-up to take out the intergalactic planet-killer and triple-noggin' threat of Ghidrah! Oh sure, there's a side-plot about a fugitive princess, that's channeling dead martians, whose on the run from assassins, but we all know what we really came for: men dressed in rubber-suits beating the hell out of each other. And I really dig the color scheme and overall tint to these adverts; really adds some menace to the proceedings, especially the Lobby Cards.
