Humorously directed by Ishirô Honda, King Kong is pitted against Godzilla: the mighty ape clashes with Japan's finest flamethrower in what must be one of the great drawcard title fights of the century!
Tagged as the most colossal conflict the screen has ever known, entire cities are flattened and Mount Fuji is threatened in the climactic battle scenes and rousing finale.
The first time both King Kong and Godzilla appeared in colour, the film is also notable for its tremendous special effects (courtesy of Eiji Tsuburaya) and sound (by Hisashi Shimonaga, edited for the US by William L. Stevenson).
