    “Cheese & Onions” by the Rutles is now running through my head for some reason.

    When were these posters made? I can’t imagine why the old Communist regime would show such films to their citizens — shouldn’t all the entertainment be about the need to sacrifice everything for the People and the State or some such?

    Maybe they were re-edited and dubbed so that the big G was punishing the Japanese for their evil ways.

    Now THAT is a Polish movie poster!

  • Wow, that’s just…. wow.

    The Peter Max style Godzilla poster…pair that with Yellow Submarine, ya got a double feature I’d like!

  • Eric Hinkle

    So, Godzilla represents the fury of the proletariat masses, united and unleashed against capitalist-bourgeois society?

    Oh yeah, according to what I’ve read, Alan Young has just died at the ripe old age of 96. He’s best known for appearing in the old ‘Mister Ed’ sitcom, and voicing Scrooge McDuck for years, but I imagine around here he’s known better for his appearance in the classic ‘The Time Machine’.

    Thanks for what you gave us, Mister Young.

  • Scrooge will never sound right again.

    So I go on vacation and miss out on an entire week of awesome Godzilla posters… :(

  • Would it have been better to have missed a week of Gamera posters?

    Yes, just like Hensen’s Muppets and the Warner Bros. characters.
