About

“In much the same manner as The Wizard of Oz and It’s a Wonderful Life, this masterpiece long ago entered into the national consciousness as an enduring part of our heritage.” – Film Frenzy

FILM SYNOPSIS

Actress Ann Darrow (Fay Wray) and director Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong) travel to the Indian Ocean to do location shoots for Denham’s new jungle picture. Along the way, the actress meets and falls for rugged First Mate John Driscoll (Bruce Cabot). Upon arriving at a mysterious island, Ann is taken hostage by natives who prepare her as a sacrifice to the enormous ape Kong who rules over their jungle. But when Ann is rescued and Kong is captured, the real trouble begins.
