Summary
Carl Denham is a filmmaker and entrepreneur who leads an expedition to Skull Island. The island is a place where time has stood still. The natives pay homage to the one whom they revere as "Kong", and who is, indeed, king of the island. Denham, together with his beautiful starlet, Ann Darrow, and the crew of the ship, investigate the strange ritual being performed on the island by its native population. Ann finds herself captured by the natives and is to become the bride of the mysterious "Kong." The ship's first mate, Jack Driscoll, who is in love with Ann, manages to rescue her from the clutches of "Kong". Denham then arranges to capture the creature, whom he calls "King Kong" and takes him back to New York
