Trivia

Special effects director Eiji Tsuburaya wanted the fight scenes filmed in slow motion, but a camera technician accidentally undercranked the camera instead of overcranking it, resulting in the action appearing faster than reality. Tsuburaya liked the effect, and decided to use it in the film.

Warner Brothers could not get permission to use Godzilla from Joseph E. Levine and had to change the name to Gigantis.

This is the first film in which Godzilla fights another monster.

Instead of using ' Masaru Sato (I)' 's original score, Warner substituted themes from Kronos (1957) and Deerslayer (1943).
