A film crew discovers a giant prehistoric ape and brings him back to New York, where he is shackled and exhibited as “the eighth wonder of the world” before breaking loose and wreaking havoc in the name of love.

Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong), a renowned adventure filmmaker, is forced to search the streets of New York to find a lead actress for a new film he intends to make on a mysterious and uncharted island. He stumbles onto the beautiful but broke Ann Darrow (scream queen Fay Wray). Anxious for work, Ann eagerly accepts Denham’s part and agrees to make the long sea voyage the next morning. Nothing could possibly prepare them for the adventure and peril that lay ahead. Nothing could prepare them for Kong, the colossal gorilla that rules over the island and the giant prehistoric creatures that inhabit it. Though savage, Kong is capable of true tenderness when he falls in love with Ann, leading to tragic consequences.
