Friday's Fright Film Fact

The idea for King Kong vs Godzilla (1962) came from special effects wizard, Willis O'Brien, who had created the special effects for King Kong (1933). In the late 1950's, he pitched the idea for a movie to be titled King Kong vs. Frankenstein.  The Frankenstein creature would have been a giant monster created from different animals, but no American studio was interested in the project.  Unable to find an American studio willing to back the project, producer John Beck offered the idea to Toho who replaced Frankenstein with Godzilla.
