I’m going to assume that this is one of those licensing YouTube channels, but it does give me a chance to air a Godzilla movie. I haven’t been able to do that since Vodpod closed down.

King Kong Vs. Godzilla is the third movie in the original Godzilla series. The Big G is still a bad monster at this point but thus far people love to see him fight other monsters, so why not the other big name giant monster out there? For a full look at the history of this movie I recently posted a video by Patrick Gavin for Monstrosities going over the full history of the movie. The US version ditches some of the humor and adds unnecessary American footage of some unnecessary UN reporters. There’s also an article on the Godzilla fanwiki that goes over more of the changes.

This version is the US edit, posted to YouTube by Star Entertainment English, an Indian company that appears to license movies. It features a few classic movies and a bunch of b-movies. Enjoy.

For the record, Toho had always declared this Kong’s victory. Godzilla is still a villain monster at this time, not starting his trek to becoming one of Japan’s “guardian monsters” until Ghidorah, The Three-Headed Monster. According to Gojipedia Kong was also the more popular monster at the time. There was a popular book series at the time that claimed in the Japanese version Godzilla won while Kong won in the US version, but this has since been proven false.

I’m hoping this week I can do a Finally Watched on the Legendary Pictures “rematch” between Kong and Godzilla. We’ll see what happens.
