Great find on that lobby card John O. I wish I could find a shot of the "mysterious cave" with the Moai in it, that the scientist character discovers the glyphs in.

Return to Mothra Island in the 1966 Godzilla pic "Ebirah, Horror of the Deep" (aka "Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster"), another Poly Pop monster movie that's been mentioned on TC before.

The production values are much lower than earlier Toho pics as seen in this scaled down Polynesian native dance number...




And instead of the three Moais from 1961's "Mothra" we get just this one boring stone thingy...

The back opens up to a huge fold out bar cabinet.

Yup, it's Mothra Island (aka Infant Island). The natives are dancing to wake up a sleeping Mothra...



And here's the twin fairies but I'm pretty sure they're different actresses than in "Mothra"...



BTW, I think this would be an awesome theme for Tiki Oasis !!

Mothra Island also makes an appearance in 1964's "Ghidorah, the Three Headed Monster". Here's Mothra (in worm form) being worshipped again by the island natives...



But what happened to the Moais from the first movie ??

I forgot about the classic 1964 "Mothra vs. Godzilla" (aka "Godzilla vs the Thing") !!

In that one we see some Tiki stuff in the Mothra Island temple...

D.O.A. (1950)

Edmond O'Brian is poisoned with "luminous toxin" in a Nautical Beatnik Jive Tiki bar in San Francisco called "The Fisherman". No tropical cocktails, but lots of masks, tapa, fishnets, and bartenders wearing leis.

Includes bonus beatnik dialogue: "Oh donít bother me, man. Iím being enlightened!"

I just watched D.O.A. again (I have been on a Film Noir binge)
that is one of the best scenes in the movie also.

Later in the film Edmond O'Brien is on the run through downtown L.A.
and you get a shot of Clifton's then on to the Bradbury Building for the big showdown.
