Movie Posters - Animal Treasure Island

The Japanese movie poster for Animal Treasure Island (1971). It's a great poster; Heaven only knows just where you could find one of those in the flesh. I'd imagine they'd be worth a small fortune.

Interesting to note how Kathy barely makes it out of the bottom corner; she's such a forceful firebrand that she practically dominates the entire film. Animal Treasure Island marks the first appearance (although Hilda from Horus, Prince of the Sun is clearly an influence) of that most celebrated archetype, the Miyazaki Heroine. Am I the only one who thinks she should be the main character on the poster?
