Trying To Understand The Plot Of The 1966 Film Godzilla Vs. The Sea Monster (ゴジラ・エビラ・モスラ 南海の大決闘) ...
A "country boy" whose brother is believed to have died at sea goes off in search of him. After a pointless aside at a newspaper office, the man finds himself at, of all places, a They Shoot Horses, Don't They-style sixties dance off. Very hip, very gear. Two men who just lost the dance off meet the country boy and instantly decide to take this total stranger to the beach so they can all go look at boats together (???) and end up on a boat with a bank robber who is really a nice guy and despite the shotgun is friendly and lets these total strangers spend the night in the boat. While everyone sleeps the country boy hijacks the boat and suddenly the four go off on an ocean adventure. They end up on an island where the native inhabitants of Mothra Island are being used as slaves by a gang called the Red Bamboo who are using them to manufacture yellow "heavy water" (again ???) which they plan to use to make nuclear weapons. They also use it to control a giant lobster-like monster called Ebirah who guards the island and makes sure the slaves don't escape. The four hide from the Red Bamboo and eventually find and befriend a cute native woman and together they all hide in a cave where Godzilla has been sleeping. They wake up Godzilla and use him, with Mothera's help, to defeat Ebirah and the Red Bamboo.
This is some strange ass shit right here.
This is also one of my new favorite Godzilla films of all time.
