Godzilla Color Bromide Set: Part 19, Godzilla vs Gigan (1972)

The end of the line for the bromide set (it's too bad they didn't at least make it through TERROR OF MECHAGODZILLA).  I hope this has been a fun and helpful journey. 


Godzilla Color Bromide Set: Part 18, Godzilla vs the Smog Monster (Hedorah, 1971)

Here's a film that has only grown in its legacy over the years.  Today you will find it on more people's list of favorites, and that definitely includes me.  There are 18 bromides for the film:
This image gets quite a bit of use; it's the original prototype for Hedorah.

This card is just merely cropped from the Japanese movie poster for the film...!

This is one of my very favorite bromide cards!
ABOVE and BELOW:  I've said it before on this very blog, but I will again:  those mysterious orbs are HEDORAH'S EYES.  This comes not only from information in the film itself, but also an interview with the director! If one curious soul stumbles across this fact here, I have done my job!

There is actually a 1,000-piece puzzle available of this image! Yikes.

"Nom, nom, nom..."

One of the holdups to getting people to like this film is this, right here.  Godzilla flew.  It happened.  We should reward "out of the box" thinking.  Isn't that why Shin Godzilla is so successful, after all?

Hey, it's a behind-the-scenes image, right here at the end.


Godzilla Color Bromide Set: Part 17, Space Amoeba (Yog, 1970)

Fun and entertaining film that gets a big representation here with 18 bromides.  Of course, there was plenty of kaiju action to choose from, and it was a much more recent film at the time this set was made:
For some reason I have a mental block when it comes to this monster's name, which is Kamoebas.

The giant crab is called Ganimes, which I have a partial mental block to about half the time.

The giant cuttlefish is called Gezora, which is easy for me to remember for some reason.

There is A LOT going on in this paste-up!

Herd of bats (not the right word, I know.  Swarm?) that plays into the plot, in that they enable the monsters to be un-controlled by the Space Amoeba (or, in the US, Yog).

Gezora out for a stroll.

A few of the bromide cards were made using artwork that was more square, and instead of cropping the artwork into a rectangle, they used it with a large white margin, which is rather odd.

Here's another wild paste-up, filled with action.

Although.....this one is just weird. I mean, really.

Anybody taken "Burning Gezora" as a band name yet???? I'm calling it!
