The blonde Ann Darrow, a chorus jobless, is hired by director Carl Denham to star in his next film. The “Venture”, the ship commanded by Captain Englehorn and that transports the whole team, arrives at Skull Island, a mysterious island where a legendary creature venerated by the natives lives and called “King Kong”. During the trip, Ann falls in love with John Driscoll, the second on board. Once on the ground, the explorers are immediately discovered by the Indians and back down. But the natives kidnap Ann, the “golden-haired woman,” and tie her up to offer her as a sacrifice to King Kong. When his companions appear to free her, a giant ape catches the young girl and disappears into the forest. Denham and his men then launch into the pursuit of King Kong.
