Format: DVD Verified Purchase
This DVD set contains three sci-fi classics from Toho (meaning "Eastern Treasure" in Japanese). "Mothra" tells the story of a joint expedition of Rolithican and Japanese scientists exploring an island and discovering many curious things, including two women only a 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, the gigantic moth worshiped as a goddess by the island people. Mothra seeks the women in Tokyo and later in Rolithica. In "Battle in Outer Space," aliens able to enslave a few human beings to do their evil biddings, plan to conquer the Earth, but the nations of the world unite to launch a counter offensive to foil the invasion. But my favourite of the three movies would definitely have to be "The H-Man," which is a typical story of the fear of nuclear radiation but with a twist: instead of the usual overgrown monster trying to level Tokyo (Godzilla), this time the monster turns out to be a living liquid (which looks like spilled shampoo) that can dissolve a person on contact. The story opens with the Tokyo police looking for an elusive small-time thief who apparently decided to discard his clothes and personal effects to run naked in the cold, rainy night. A scientist believes instead that there might have been something in the rain that would have dissolved the thief. The police cannot believe this story, nor the accounts of fishermen being treated for radiation sickness claiming to have boarded a derelict ship where three of them were attacked by liquid entities that dissolved their victims on contact. After conducting experiments by exposing frogs to radiation, scientists are finally able to convince the authority that Japan has a deadly problem.Read more ›

Mothra is the reason to get this dvd, but the other movies are fun too. Quite enjoyable. The special effects are quite good - for the time period. Toho was on quite the roll from the late 50s into the 60s.

This Mothral flick was indeed boring when I saw it but the reason I rate it high because for one it teaches you a lesson
in this movie and the other reason Its the original mothra black and white film!!The original twins in this movie gets capture and taken on display for money not until they call on mothra to come help them.Overal this movie is alright but dont expect a lot of mothra action cus overal its a good story rather then a cheesy monster flick.

...which another viewer asked about was, I believe, Ghidrah: the Three-Headed Monster.

This is the first Mothra movie I saw a a child and remains one of my favorites. I like the plot where the girls get kidnapped from Infant Island by the greedy bad guys, they sing for Mothra, and Mothra of course comes to their rescue. I have never seen the new Mothra movies, nor do I care to - I prefer to honor the oldies but goodies.
There is another fabulous Mothra movie for which I am seeking but cannot seem to find. Unfortunately, I do not know the exact title. It is a Mothra v Godzilla (Godzilla v Mothra?) movie where there is a third (flying) monster in it as well. It is NOT the 1964 Godzilla v Mothra movie that is currently advertised on the Internet for sale (where Mothra dies but has offspring that team up against Godzilla), however some parts of it sound similar and it must have been made around the same time.
The twins are also in the version I am seeking and sing the Mothra song longer, more beautifully and with better stereo sound than the "Mothra" movie featured here. They live in a dollhouse built especially for them while captured, wear beautiful outfits and walk past a tropical fish tank while singing their Mothra song. As a girl, I enjoyed seeing Mothra and Godzilla fight, however I loved and watched the movies expecially because of the twins and their song.
Anyway, the plot, from what I recall is:
There is an earthquake and/or hurricaine, the Mothra egg on the Island is exposed. It is discovered and stolen from the Island, the twins are kidnapped, Godzilla is awakened, a third flying monster comes into play somehow (I don't recall the details)... Eventually, all three monsters are fighting and Mothra almost gets defeated.

After a ship hits a reef and goes down near the atomic testing area, the worst is feared, but four surviving sailors are rescued, healthy and with no trace of radiation at all!
This leads to an expedition to Infant Island, part of East Biru, and it's led by the Rolithican, Clark Nelson, a slimy, unsavory character with his face twisted in a sneer. Japanese members of the expedition include Dr. Harada, the linguist and ethnologist Dr. Chujo, and a reporter named Vin Chun, nicknamed the Bulldog because he never lets go of a story. They discover a pair of foot-high grown girls and decide to leave them in peace. However, the greedy Nelson kidnaps them for his personal gain. This leads to Mothra awakened to rescue them. Despite entreaties by Chujo, Vin Chun, and his colleague Michi, Nelson refuses to let them go and puts them to work in The Secret Fairies Show, which plays to packed houses.
Compared to others in the Toho monsters canon, the production values are more topnotch than later entries, in regards to the brass band and the crowd seeing the expedition ship off, as well as the scenes of destruction. However, there are some shots where it's clear that some of the tanks are toys, as the soldiers on them are clearly plastic soldiers, and there is a scene when Nelson seizes the twins and it's clear he's holding dummies in his hand. The moth version of Mothra is a visual triumph, with its colourful markings. A pity that for the majority of the movie, we only see a dingy brown caterpillar smashing up Tokyo.
But the charm of this movie clearly go to the twin fairies, played by the Peanuts, those twin Japanese pop singers of the 1960's, Yumi and Emi Ito. They spend the majority of the movie chanting for Mothra, wearing kitschy costumes, and just overall being cute.
