Movie Quote(s):
  • Madame Piranha: You're a failure. Dr. Who: Not a chance of that!
  • [Lt. Commander Jiro Nomura and Lt. Susan Watson are being held in a freezing cell by Dr. Who because they wouldn't help him manipulate King Kong] Dr. Who: Why should you endure this when it's not necessary? Nelson cannot aid you any longer, he's been cancelled. Lt. Commander Jiro Nomura: You dog! [Dr. Who points gun at him] Dr. Who: I am a realist and I need you, so I'm going to be generous. I'm going to let you go without a bit of trouble, and with lots of cash. You just have to do one thing for me. [Lt. Commander Jiro Nomura and Lt. Susan Watson refuse] Dr. Who: You think I wouldn't kill you? I could and I would.
Movie Trivia:
  • Two costumes of King Kong were made. The arms of the first costume were very long, so Haruo Nakajima's hands did not reach those of the costume. He had to grasp onto sticks that were attached to the hands of the costume. He wore a second costume with shorter arms whenever they were shooting footage of King Kong battling other monsters.
  • The way Kong kills Gorosaurus, by splitting his jaws apart, is the same way the original Kong kills the tyrannosaurus in the original King Kong (1933).
  • Even though 'Linda Miller' was an American that spoke fluent English, her voice was dubbed by 'Julie Bennett'.
  • This film was a live action tie-in to the animated TV series "King Kong" (1966), was was also produced by Rankin/Bass Productions, and not a sequel to _"KinguKongu tai Gojira" (1962)_ (also produced by Toho and directed by Ishiro Honda) as is often suggested.
  • Despite the master villain being named Dr. Who, this film has no connection to "Doctor Who" (1963).
