reporter, Ichiro Sakai, and two scientists stumble
upon Godzilla's unconscious body, which washed ashore
during a storm. The creature is presumed dead, and
goes under the interest of a businessman who wants
to commercially exploit the carcase as a tourist
attraction. Eventually, though, Godzilla awakes
and commences to terrorize humanity once more. The
nuclear menace makes his was toward Rolisica, who
try and rebel the monster using Frontier Missiles,
but to no avail. Ichiro and the two scientists end
up venturing to Infant Island in order to ask for
Mothra's aid in defeating Godzilla. In return for
Mothra's help, the three offer themselves up as
hostages. The natives agree, and Mothra flies off
to confront Godzilla.
Meanwhile, after trampling Himeji Castle,
Godzilla moves east toward Tokyo, where the Japanese
Self Defense Force has set up Artificial Lightning Generators.
The towers attack Godzilla, but unfortunately the creature
gains an immunity to the attack and moves onward toward
the beach where he finds Ichiro and the two scientists.
Fortunately, Mothra arrives on the scene just in time
to save them, and attacks Godzilla head on in a final
were several differences in the original screenplay
from Shinichi Sekizawa, which he submitted in 1963
on December 31st, compared to the finished product.
The most noticeable is that Godzilla's body was
substituted for Mothra's Egg in the final draft.
Furthermore, Godzilla was also going to take a bigger
role in the film, with Mothra only arriving just
in time for the climax. Rolisica, a fictional land
that was featured in Mothra
(1961), was present in this early screenplay as
well. The Rolisican government was also going to
be the ones to deploy the Frontier Missiles against
Godzilla, as opposed to the US forces as it occurred
in the International version of Mothra
vs. Godzilla (1964). Lastly, this early
draft didn't feature Mothra's Larva at all, and
the final confrontation was going to be with the
Imago version of Mothra and Godzilla.
