Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Japanese Version[edit | edit source]

American Version[edit | edit source]

I said I would attempt to explain. After examining photographs of Godzilla taken by the I.C.S., I tend to classify him as a prehistoric species of dinosaur, possibly a cross between the gigantic Tyrannosaurus rex and the Stegosaurus, which is sometimes known as the "plated dinosaur". Roughly, this, uh, particular form of reptile existed somewhere between 97 and 125 million years ago.

Well, in Mexico, they found a frog which they think laid dormant for two million years. In Japan, the flowers bloomed recently from lotus seeds 3,000 years old. The fact that Godzilla is here, and alive, forces us to reconsider many theories on suspended animation.
„ 

— Dr. Arnold Johnson

Fossils found in Japan resemble Godzilla. Also, he headed instinctively for Japan, like a salmon returning to the waters in which he was born. It's my opinion Godzilla thinks he's heading home.
„ 

— Dr. Arnold Johnson

Well, I know the atom bomb is being considered, but that would be more destructive than the creature itself. As a reptile, Godzilla might shy away from electricity. But, at this time, I wouldn't care to hazard a guess.
„ 

— Dr. Arnold Johnson

Legends of giant gorillas have persisted for some time. Now, the fact that Kong and Godzilla have appeared at the same time is interesting, scientifically.
Godzilla has a brain about this size. He is sheer brute force, while Kong is a thinking animal. His brain is considerably larger, about ten times the size of this gorilla skull.
Being instinctive rivals, there is no doubt that they will attempt to destroy one another.
„ 

— Dr. Arnold Johnson

I do. Being amphibious, Godzilla is probably lurking in the ocean depths off Japan, where the depths go to about 20,000 fathoms. He could be puzzled at the changes taken place during his long sleep. But I have no doubt that when he decides to return to land, he'll select Japan.
„ 

— Dr. Arnold Johnson

It appears that King Kong, scenting the presence of a hated enemy, is determined to destroy Godzilla. Thus, a battle of the giants, which may or may not have taken place millions of years ago, may be recreated soon on the Nasu plain.

Video Release Descriptions[edit | edit source]

The two mightiest creatures of all time come together in a colossal clash-and only one can survive! Freed from an exploding iceberg, Godzilla rages south through Japan...Escaping from a science team in the South Seas, King Kong thunders north...Meeting in Nikko, the two monsters go head to head! Godzilla stops Kong with his radiation breath, but is wounded and retreats to Mt. Fuji to nurse his burns. King Kong is revitalized by thunderbolts from a passing rainstorm and heads to Tokyo, almost razing the city in his search for Godzilla before the military subdues him with narcotic berries. Realizing that humanity's only hope is to let the two indestructible monsters fight one another, the military takes Kong to Mt. Fuji...where the most spectacular fight ever begins!

GoodTimes' 1987 VHS release for King Kong vs. Godzilla [14]

One of the earlier Godzilla titles, King Kong has all the hallmarks of classic Japanese low budget sci-fi adventure: cheap sets, wooden acting, banal script, acres of lovingly model cities made only to be destroyed in seconds by a guy in a rubber monster costume and a plot that develops no further than the conceptual boundaries of the one line title.
It goes without saying that the Japanese homeland, and indeed Tokyo itself, is under threat of utter devastation by both monsters. The question for the beleaguered armed forces is how to get both Godzilla and King Kong together for a final natural-enemy knockout bout; their mutual destruction the preferred outcome! Once the solution is provided, in the form of the strongest steel tread known to man, the fight is on. Will Godzilla prevail or King Kong? Warm the set, cool the tinnies and get ready for a couple of monster rounds worthy of Iron Mike Tyson!

'King Kong Vs Godzilla' is one of the very earliest Godzilla films and bears the hallmarks of the classic Japanese low budget sci-fi adventure: cheap sets, wooden acting, and acres of model Tokyo just waiting to be destroyed by a guy in a rubber monster costume!
In this knockout epic, King Kong and Godzilla appear as natural enemies fighting over the Japanese capital. The beleaguered armed forces are at a loss and the fate of Tokyo rests with a young citizen who happens to have the strongest steel thread known to man in his possession.

East meets West as the fate of Japan hangs in the balance in this colossal clash between two of the mightiest movie monsters of all time: Godzilla, who is soon to return to the big screen, and King Kong.
Emerging from the iceberg where he was buried in his last adventure, Godzilla heads for Tokyo, while a drug company discovers Kong on a remote South Pacific island, where he battles a giant octopus. Soon these two terrible titans are on a collision course, as the authorities realize that the only way to defeat them is to pit them against each other in a spectacular final showdown on top of Mount Fuji. Marking Godzillas first appearance in color, this boxoffice blockbuster from the director of the original Godzilla, King of the Monsters established him as the most successful cinematic monster of the 1960s.
