A typhoon washes ashore a gigantic egg. It's soon claimed by greedy entrepreneurs who refuse to return it to its rightful owner, Mothra. Soon Godzilla arises near Nagoya, washed ashore by the same typhoon.
A newspaper and television station funded by a pharmaceutical company want a sensation, which happens to be the discovery of King Kong on an island. He is captured and brought to Japan, where he escapes from captivity and battles Godzilla.

This was the first of two films in the series that Yôsuke Natsuki appeared in. Natsuke's next series appearance wouldn't take place until 20 years later when he appeared in Godzilla 1985 (1985). See more »
The Rodan head puppet used for close-ups does not match the full-size Rodan suit's head. The puppet head has bigger eyes, and a smaller beak. See more »
In the American version, the scene in the police station prior to Shindo being informed of Princess Salno's trip is cut drastically. In the Japanese version the scene begins with Shindo meeting with a journalist friend and the two of them discuss the strange occurrences throughout the world (the heatwave, the meteor shower and the encephalitis outbreak) and culminates with Shindo meeting up with his chief.

...into a mediator! Mothra has many talents, including the ability to be a monster counselor. I love it!
I've been watching all the Godzilla movies sequentially, and this one was surprisingly enjoyable and well done. The human characters are likable and actually have brains. The story is well-written and has a lot of elements in it that help keep your interest. For example, the parts where there are no monsters fighting are interesting. Usually, the human interaction parts are boring. Plus, we get to see FOUR monsters in this one - AWESOME! And last, but not least - The Peanuts. Any movie with the Peanuts has to be good (well, maybe...) And, I love the woman playing the princess/Venusian. She is drop-dead gorgeous. Her face is so beautiful. The story-line concerning her adds much to the film.
All of my comments are about the original Japanese version with English sub-titles. This is a very solid movie and can be enjoyed by people that might not love monster movies. If you love monster movies, you'll be in monster heaven...
