Needless to say, when I found the first ad for the titanic title bout between King Kong and Godzilla I got a little excited.

When I found the second ad, needless to say, I was a little concerned about the repeater, but figured, hell, we were heading for the weekend and building toward something really and truly special…

Hrrrrmmmnnn … Trumped by Connie Francis. Nertz. Welp, hopefully, when it recycles to the Drive-In the ads will be a little more dramatic. And varied. And until I find those, check out these super-cool ads for the same film at the equally super-cool Friends of Marty Melville archive.

I’m sorry to report that I’ve tried to sit through Yog Monster from Space at least twice but fell asleep both times; and the second time I didn’t even make it as far as the inaugural effort. *sigh* However, that is certainly not the case for Toho’s ultimate Kaiju Rally, Destroy All Monsters, where the denizens of Monster Island unite to kick a little Kilaak ass!
