Summary
Filmmaker and entrepreneur Carl Denham leads an expedition to Skull Island, a place where time has stood still. The natives pay homage to Kong, and capture starlet Ann Darrow to become his bride. The ship's first mate Jack Driscoll, who is in love with Ann, rescues her from Kong's clutches. Denham then captures the creature, whom he calls King Kong, and takes him back to New York
