Plenty of Action
This is the second film to feature the "Toho Kong". This film features plenty of action and is pretty much a copy of the original Kong (especially the scene where Kong and his Mecha double climb Tokyo Tower a la the Empire State Building). The big difference is that the girl isn't scared of Kong like Fay Wray was (note, there is no evidence that proves that this Linda Miller is Jackie Gleason's daughter. By all accounts she was a teen-aged model living in Japan at the time who was cast in this film.). Despite the fact that the film lifts several elements from the original, it stands on its own as a pure escapist fun.
