King Kong vs. Godzilla

is actually based on an original story by the original Kong
animator, Willis O'Brien. He wanted to do a stop-motion film called King Kong vs. Frankenstein
(!), with the monster being some kind of giant laboratory experiment gone wrong and then being sent to Skull Island. (Although there are also sketches of the big battle taking place in San Francisco!)
That film, sadly, was never made.
Complications with the story rights saw the basic premise eventually landing at Toho, and King Kong vs. Godzilla
If you ever have the opportunity, try and check out the original Japanese version of the film, which is actually a deliberate satire of the then rampant Japanese consumerism.
