A Cultural History

This film recently aired on Turner Classic Movies. I can't believe I never noticed this before. These are the same helmets that appear in The Green Slime. I believe the visors are darker on the helmets that are worn in The Green Slime. This is interesting, because we're talking about two different studios. Obviously there was some friendly sharing between Toei and Shochiku.
Sharing or buying from the same military air force supplier? Another one to investigate further I thinkcheers
