Summary
A moviemaking expedition to a fantastic island is filled with dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures. A giant simian becomes lovestruck with the film's blonde starlet. King Kong is captured and is brought to Manhattan, where he goes on a rampage, culminating in the fateful finale atop the Empire State Building where he cradles his beloved and swats at machine-gunning airplanes
