MOSURA TAI GOJIRA (Godzilla Vs. The Thing) - Akira Ifukube - "Mosura" (1964)

Probably better known as "Godzilla Vs. Mothra", but "Godzilla Vs. The Thing" is one of the much cooler titles, and what a great movie starring another one of our heroes, Akira Takarada. Man, did that cat do it all, and it all was good! To go along with Akira's Takarada's performance, is another top notch original score by Akira Ifukube! Instead of Midas, everything those two Akira's touched turned to Godzilla Gold! This short piece is self-descriptive. It's about Mothra, also known as The Thing or Mosura, and without a doubt, the baddest moth in the universe! Get down, it's all about who's got the biggest huevos!

Where are the scenes of the Peanut Girls singing "Moth-uh-ruh?"

I saw this in a theater in 1964. Man. That was 35 cents I'll never get back again.

Talk about inflation, only two years earlier, you could rock out to a double feature for a quarter, 20 cents admission, and a pack of Neccos for a nickel!
