Kong Did Win

Postby kpa » Wed Dec 31, 2003 4:38 pm

Here's the KING KONG VS GODZILLA plot description from Toho. While it condenses the story considerably, it leaves no doubt about who Toho says won the final battle.

This was published in Toho Films a few months after the movie was released in 1962. IMO, the fact that it was written close to the movie's creation and at a time when Honda, Tsuburaya, Tanaka, Sekizawa, etc were still alive adds far more credibility to it than any "retroactive" thinking on Toho's part (I should also add I've never seen Toho officially contradict what was written in 1962).

Hopefully this will put this matter to rest. :lol: :lol:

Of course, we've all known this for a long time--where it gets sticky is the fact that now Toho's press dept. says it was a tie, which seems to better reflect the movie's end itself IMO--*sigh* this'll never end. :roll: Soo confused!

Um...that there are conflicting reports even within Toho? It would be one thing if Toho's PR said Kong won, and it was just a bunch of crazed Godzilla fanboys with bruised egos fighting it, but now the question is what should you be listening to--old Toho or new Toho? Old Toho would know, having made the movie--but now that they say it was a tie, oy... And of course one fan's opinion means nothing, but IMO there's nothing conclusive in the film itself that says Kong won, so I personally lean towards the latter...

At the time Kong was the big name brand and Godzilla was a newbie (it was only his 3rd movie after all). So it doesn't surprise me that kong won. Still that does that mean that King Ghidorah won in Monster Zero because the ending was the same as Kong's.

Hi G-Sters,

Doesn't really matter to me whether Toho said or says King won or Godzilla won, because I know in my heart that Kong can never ever ever ever ever in one million years even dream of beating Godzilla in any form of combat. :D

Godzilla is just too powerful...end of story. :)

PEACE
