When a pair of fairies are abducted from their South Pacific island and put on display in a vaudeville show, their godlike deity, a giant caterpillar/moth raises hell and beats up on Tokyo while trying to find them.

 

Toho unleashed their second most popular monster after Godzilla in this fairytale-like Kaiju flick; one of their best. Mothra would go on to become a regular player in the Godzilla series and would eventually headline her own series in the 1990s. A classic.
