Summary
Young, beautiful actress Ann Darrow is from the world of 1930s vaudeville, and down on her luck. She meets Carl Denham, an over-ambitious filmmaker, who brings her on an exploratory expedition to a remote island where she finds compassion and the true meaning of humanity with ape Kong. Together, beauty and beast finally meet their fate in New York, where the filmmaker has displayed the ape in the quest of finding fame by using commercial exploitation. This ultimately leads to catastrophe, including the man who falls in love with Ann and plays an unlikely hero by trying to save her from Kong and her destiny
