Carl Denham is directing a movie and finds the ideal place to film his movie in Skull Island. What is missing from his film is his lead actress and he finds Ann Darrow to be the perfect girl for the part. Ann falls in love with First Mate Jack Driscoll. The entire crew has no idea what they will see at Skull Island and why it is so secretive. When they reach the island, they soon discover that a huge gorilla lives on the island. The natives abduct Ann, for they want to set up reparation for King Kong. The giant beast takes Ann in his giant hands and whisks her away.
Carl, Jack Driscoll, and the rest of the crew go searching for Ann in the jungle. They encounter dinosaurs, unfortunately killing many members of the crew. Driscoll finally discovers Ann in the giant gorilla’s sanctuary and takes her away. King Kong chases them through the jungle, demolishing the native’s village. He is then restrained with gas bombs thrown by the crew. Denham brings King Kong back to the city. He is showcased on a New York stage and breaks loose, snatching Ann again and bringing her to the top of the Empire State Building. A fight begins between King Kong and the military airplanes. The planes take him down to his death and Ann joins Driscoll’s side.
