- 1. Say, is this the moving-picture ship?
- 2. The Venture? Yeah.
- 3. - Are you going on this crazy voyage?
- What's crazy about it?
- 4. I don't know. But everybody is talking
about that crazy fella running it.
- 5. - Carl Denham?
- Guess that's the name.
- 6. He ain't scared of nothing.
If he wants a picture of lion...
- 7. he just goes up to him
and tells him to look pleasant.
- 8. He's a tough egg. Why all this talk
about this voyage being crazy?
- 9. Everybody around the docks is talking
about the cargo, for one thing.
- 10. And I never did see a ship
this size with such a crew.
- 11. - Not enough men to handle her?
- Not enough!
- 12. Three times more than
the ship needs.
- 13. I don't see where they're gonna
have room enough to sleep.
- 14. Hey, down there.
What do you want?
- 15. - Denham aboard?
- Who are you?
- 16. My name is Weston,
the theatrical agent.
- 17. Well, why didn't you say so?
Come on aboard.
- 18. Denham's getting wild. I hope you've got
some good news for him.
- 19. Well, Mr. Denham, you know the reasons
for hurrying as well as I do.
- 20. Insurance company found out
we're carrying explosives.
- 21. Marshal will be aboard
tomorrow or next day.
- 22. If we make a legal case of it,
we'll be tied up for months?
- 23. With enough ammunition
to blow up the harbor.
- 24. What do you think the marshal will say
to these new gas bombs of yours?
- 25. According to you, one of them
is enough to knock out an elephant.
- 26. We've got to get where we're going
before the monsoon starts.
- 27. - Trust me to see you through a blow.
- Oh, now, don't get sore, skipper.
- 28. You can't run into the rainy season when
you're trying to make an outdoor picture.
- 29. Months wasted, money gone
and nothing to show.
- 30. Still you always
bring back a picture.
- 31. And everybody says,
"There's only one Carl Denham. "
- 32. Weston, I was just going ashore
to call you.
- 33. If I'd known that,
I would have waited.
- 34. This is the skipper.
Weston, the theatrical agent.
- 35. I guess you met Driscoll,
the first mate.
- 36. Well, Weston, how about the girl?
- 37. - It can't be done, Denham.
- 38. It's got to be done.
Now, look here, Weston.
- 39. Somebody's interfered
with every girl I try to hire.
- 40. Now all the agents in town
have shut down on me. All but you.
- 41. - You know I'm square.
- Everybody knows you're square.
- 42. But you've got
a reputation for recklessness...
- 43. that can't be glossed over.
Then you're so secretive.
- 44. You said it.
- 45. Even skipper and mate don't
know where they're going, what.
- 46. There you are.
I've got a conscience, Denham.
- 47. I can't send a pretty girl
such as you ask on a job like this...
- 48. without telling her what to expect.
- What is she to expect?
- 49. To go off on a trip
for no one knows how long...
- 50. to some spot
you don't even hint at...
- 51. the only woman on a ship with
the toughest mugs I ever looked at.
- 52. I mean the crew.
- 53. Good Lord, you talk as if
I never brought anybody back alive.
- 54. The skipper and Driscoll
have stuck to me on two trips.
- 55. - They look well enough.
- Sure, we're healthy.
- 56. But it's a different thing
taking a girl into danger.
- 57. I suppose there's no danger
in New York.
- 58. Listen, there are dozens of girls
in this town...
- 59. that are in more danger
than they are with me.
- 60. Yeah, but they know
that kind of danger.
- 61. You never had a woman
in any of your pictures.
- 62. - Why do you want one?
- Holy mackerel!
- 63. Do you think I wanna haul
a woman around?
- 64. - Then why?
- Because the public, bless them...
- 65. must have a pretty face.
- 66. Sure, everybody likes romance.
- 67. Isn't there any romance or adventure
without having a flapper in it?
- 68. Well, Mr. Denham, why not take
a picture in a monastery?
- 69. Makes me sore. I go out,
sweat blood to make a swell picture...
- 70. then the critics
and the exhibitors all say:
- 71. "If this picture had love interest,
it would gross twice as much. "
- 72. The public wants a girl, and this time
I'm gonna give what they want.
- 73. - Don't know where you'll get her.
- I've gotta get her, Weston.
- 74. We've gotta leave by morning.
- 75. - We've gotta be gone by daylight.
- 76. Well, there's a good reason.
- 77. Everything I hear about it
makes me like it less.
- 78. I'm glad I didn't get you a girl.
- 79. You are, eh? Well, I'll show you.
- 80. Do you think I'm gonna give up
because you can't find me a girl?
- 81. I'm going to make
the greatest picture in the world.
- 82. Something that nobody's
ever seen or heard of.
- 83. They'll have to think up a lot
of new adjectives when I come back.
- 84. - Where you going?
- Going out...
- 85. and get a girl for my picture.
Even if I have to marry one.
- 86. - Stand aside, please. Get your case later.
- Can I take my things?
- 87. Say, lay off the shoving, will you?
- 88. - Oh, I didn't mean to shove you.
- Excuse me.
- 89. What do they give you in this joint?
- 90. Soup tonight. Coffee and sinkers
in the morning.
- 91. I catch you, you stealer.
Now, I get you cop. You like that, huh?
- 92. No, no. I didn't. Let me go.
I wanted to, but I didn't.
- 93. - Had enough of these stealers.
- Dry up. Kid didn't take any.
- 94. - Truly I didn't.
- Three people this week...
- 95. - Here... Here's a buck.
- A buck.
- 96. Scram.
- 97. Hey, taxi!
- 98. Feeling better?
- 99. Yes, thank you.
- 100. - You're very kind.
- Don't you fool yourself.
- 101. I'm not bothering
about you just out of kindness.
- 102. - How'd you ever get into this fix?
- Bad luck, I guess.
- 103. There are a lot of girls like me.
- 104. - Not many with your looks.
- I can get by in good clothes all right.
- 105. - But when a girl gets too shabby...
- No family?
- 106. Supposed to have an uncle someplace.
- 107. Did you ever do any acting?
- 108. I used to do extra work now
and then over on Long Island.
- 109. The studio's closed now.
- 110. - What's your name?
- Ann Darrow.
- 111. Fine. I've got a job for you.
- 112. Costumes on the ship
will fit you.
- 113. If the shops are still open,
I can get clothes for you.
- 114. - Come on.
- 115. - But what is it?
- It's money and adventure and fame.
- 116. It's the thrill of a lifetime.
A long sea voyage...
- 117. that starts at
6:00 tomorrow morning.
- 118. No, wait.
- 119. I don't understand.
You must tell me.
- 120. I do want the job so...
- 121. but I can't.
- Oh, I see.
- 122. No, you've got me wrong.
This is strictly business.
- 123. - I only wanted...
- Sure. Sure you did.
- 124. I got a little excited and I forgot
you didn't understand.
- 125. Listen, I'm Carl Denham.
Ever heard of me?
- 126. Yes, yes. You make moving pictures
in jungles and places.
- 127. That's right. And I pick you
as lead in my next picture.
- 128. We sail at 6.
- 129. - Where to?
- A long way off.
- 130. And listen, Ann, I'm on the level.
No funny business.
- 131. - What do I have to do?
- Just trust me and keep your chin up.
- 132. Hey, you men on that winch...
- 133. down below on the deck
and help with these hatches.
- 134. Hurry this line forward.
- 135. Forward, you farmer and up here!
- 136. What are you doing up here?
- 137. - I just wanted to see.
- Oh, you just wanted to see.
- 138. Well, I'm sorry.
Make that line fast!
- 139. You're that girl Denham
picked, aren't you?
- 140. Yes. I think this is awfully exciting.
I've never been on a ship before.
- 141. I've never been on one
with a woman before.
- 142. I guess you don't think much
of women on ships?
- 143. No, they're a nuisance.
- 144. - I'll try not to be.
- You've been in the way already.
- 145. Bring that ladder aboard!
- 146. Well, you better stay below.
- 147. What? The whole voyage?
- 148. I'm afraid I didn't apologize
for hitting you.
- 149. That was a pretty tough rap
on the chin.
- 150. - Well, we're off.
- We're off.
- 151. Say, how many potatoes do you think
you've peeled in six weeks?
- 152. Too many.
- 153. Sailors eat an awful lot,
- 154. All time eat.
Someday me go back China.
- 155. Never see no more potatoes.
- 156. - Charlie, isn't the ocean wonderful?
- Very pretty.
- 157. Pretty soon you be all same sailor,
only no eat so much.
- 158. I'd like to be. Only, of course,
it wasn't so nice up north...
- 159. when it was cold
and rough was it?
- 160. Ocean very nice when you order
weather or some eggs for breakfast.
- 161. - Hello, Ann.
- Hello, Jack.
- 162. Where you been all morning?
- 163. Trying on costumes
for Mr. Denham.
- 164. He's gonna make some tests of me
here on deck...
- 165. if the light is right.
- Tests, why?
- 166. Oh, to see which side of my face
looks best and all that.
- 167. Both sides look all right to me.
- 168. Yes, but you're not
the movie director.
- 169. If I was, you wouldn't be here.
- 170. Well, is that a nice thing to say.
- 171. This is no place for a girl.
- 172. I wish you wouldn't keep harping
on that. It's very mean of you.
- 173. Anybody would think
I'd been a lot of trouble.
- 174. I haven't. You can't say I've been
one bit of trouble to anyone...
- 175. have I?
- 176. - Sure you have. Sure you have.
- I don't see...
- 177. Well, how?
- 178. Just... Just being around is trouble.
- 179. Oh, dear, and I thought everything
was going so nicely.
- 180. Oh, you're all right.
- 181. But women just can't help
being a bother.
- 182. - Made that way I guess.
- Well, anyhow...
- 183. I've had the happiest time
of my life on this old ship.
- 184. That's... That's fine.
- 185. Say...
- 186. Did you really mean that, Ann?
- 187. Of course. Everyone's so nice to me.
Dr. Denham and the skipper...
- 188. Don't you think the skipper
is a sweet old lamb?
- 189. I'd hate to have him
hear me say that.
- 190. Iggy's nice to me.
- 191. Iggy likes me better than
he likes anybody on board.
- 192. Don't you, Iggy?
- 193. - That's right. Of course you do.
- Beauty and the beast, eh?
- 194. Well, now, I never thought
I was good-Iooking.
- 195. Put on one of the costumes.
The light's right for those tests now.
- 196. All right, Mr. Denham.
I won't be a minute.
- 197. Beauty and the beast.
- 198. Mr. Denham...
- 199. I'm gonna do some butting in.
- 200. - What's your trouble?
- When do we find out...
- 201. where we're going?
- Pretty soon.
- 202. Will you tell us
what happens after?
- 203. How can I? I'm not a fortuneteller.
- 204. You must have
some idea what you're after.
- 205. What's the matter?
You going soft.
- 206. Oh, you know I'm not.
Not for myself.
- 207. - For Ann.
- Oh, you have gone soft on her, eh?
- 208. I've got enough troubles without
a love affair to complicate things.
- 209. - Better cut it out, Jack.
- Love affair.
- 210. - Think I'm gonna fall for any dame?
- I never knew it to fail.
- 211. Some big hard-boiled egg gets
a look at a pretty face, bang...
- 212. he cracks up, gets sappy.
- Who's going sappy?
- 213. I haven't run out on you?
- 214. No. You're a pretty tough guy.
- 215. But if beauty gets you, you...
- 216. I'm going right
into a theme song here.
- 217. - Say, what are you talking about?
- It's the idea of my picture.
- 218. The beast was a tough guy too.
- 219. He could lick the world, but when
he saw beauty, she got him.
- 220. He went soft, he forgot his wisdom
and the little fellas licked him.
- 221. Think it over, Jack.
- 222. Mr. Denham, skipper
wants you up on the bridge.
- 223. - He says we've reached the position.
- 224. Come on, Jack. You're in on this.
I'm gonna spill it.
- 225. There's our noon position.
Two south, 90 east.
- 226. Now, you promised some information
when we got here.
- 227. - Way west of Sumatra.
- And way out of any waters I know.
- 228. I know the East Indies like
I do my own hand...
- 229. but I've never been here.
- Where do we go from here?
- 230. - Southwest.
- 231. Well, there is nothing
for thousands of miles.
- 232. Keep your shirt on, skipper.
We're not going thousands of miles.
- 233. Here's the island we're looking for.
- 234. Well, that position.
Let's have the big chart.
- 235. You won't find
that island on any chart.
- 236. That was made by the skipper
of a Norwegian bark.
- 237. - He must have been kidding.
- No, he wasn't.
- 238. Listen, a canoe full of natives from
this island was blown to sea.
- 239. When the bark picked them,
there was one alive.
- 240. He died before they reached port,
not before the skipper...
- 241. had a description of the island
and got an idea of where it lies.
- 242. - Where did you get it?
- Singapore, two years ago.
- 243. Skipper knew I'd be interested.
- 244. - Does he believe it?
- I don't know. But I do.
- 245. Here. Here's what
the island looks like.
- 246. There's a long, sandy peninsula.
- 247. The only possible landing place
is through this reef.
- 248. Rest of shoreline's sheer precipice,
hundreds of feet high.
- 249. And across the base
of the peninsula, cutting it off...
- 250. from the rest
of the island, is a wall.
- 251. - A wall?
- Built long ago. People who lived there...
- 252. slipped back, forgotten
the high civilization that built it.
- 253. That wall is as strong today
as it was centuries ago.
- 254. The natives keep that wall in repair.
- 255. - They need it.
- 256. There's something on the other side
of it. Something they fear.
- 257. A hostile tribe.
- 258. Did you ever hear of Kong?
- 259. Why, yes.
- 260. Some native superstition, isn't it?
A god or a spirit or something.
- 261. Well, anyway,
neither beast nor man...
- 262. something monstrous,
- 263. Still living...
- 264. still holding that island
in a grip of deadly fear.
- 265. Well, every legend
has a basis of truth.
- 266. I tell you, there's something on that
island that no white man has ever seen.
- 267. - And you expect to photograph it?
- If it's there, you bet I'll photograph it.
- 268. Suppose it doesn't like
having its picture taken?
- 269. Well, now you know why I brought
along those cases of gas bombs.
- 270. Oh, you've put on a beauty-and-beast
- 271. It's the prettiest.
- 272. All right. Just stand right over there.
- 273. I'm sort of nervous.
Suppose I don't photograph well?
- 274. You don't have to worry about that.
If I hadn't been sure...
- 275. I wouldn't have brought you
around the world.
- 276. - What will I do?
- Well, we start with the profile.
- 277. When I start cranking...
- 278. why, hold it a minute, and
then turn slowly toward me.
- 279. You see me.
You smile a little, then you listen.
- 280. Then you laugh. All right.
- 281. Camera.
- 282. - Looks kind of silly, don't it?
- Pretty dame, huh?
- 283. You think maybe
he like to take my picture?
- 284. Them cameras cost money.
Shouldn't think he'd risk it.
- 285. Now, that's fine, Ann.
Now we'll try one with a filter, eh?
- 286. Do you always take
the pictures yourself?
- 287. Ever since a trip I made to Africa.
- 288. I'd have got a swell picture
of a charging rhino...
- 289. but the cameraman got scared.
- 290. The darned fool.
I was right there with a rifle.
- 291. Seems he didn't trust me to get
the rhino before it got him.
- 292. I haven't fooled with a
cameramen since. I do it myself.
- 293. - Think he's crazy, skipper?
- Just enthusiastic.
- 294. Ann, in this one
you're looking down.
- 295. When I start to crank,
you look up slowly.
- 296. You're quite calm.
You don't expect to see a thing.
- 297. Then you just follow
my directions. All right?
- 298. Camera. Look up slowly, Ann.
- 299. That's it. You don't see anything.
- 300. Now look higher...
- 301. still higher.
- 302. Now you see it. You're amazed.
- 303. You can't believe it.
Your eyes open wider.
- 304. It's horrible, Ann,
but you can't look away.
- 305. There's no chance for you, Ann,
- 306. You're helpless, Ann, helpless.
- 307. There's just one chance,
if you can scream...
- 308. but your throat's paralyzed.
Try to scream, Ann, try.
- 309. Perhaps if you didn't see it,
you could scream.
- 310. Throw your arm across your eyes
and scream. Scream for your life.
- 311. What's he think
she's really gonna see?
- 312. This infernal fog.
Sure of your position, skipper?
- 313. Last night before this fog shut down,
I got a good sight.
- 314. We should be near the island.
- 315. If we don't see it when this fog lifts,
we never will.
- 316. We've quartered these parts.
- 317. Can't see your hand in front of your face.
- 318. Hey, Charlie, I wish you'd make
your soup as thick as this.
- 319. No bottom at 30.
- 320. The Norwegian skipper must've
been guessing at the position.
- 321. How will we know
it's the right island?
- 322. - The mountain that looks like a skull.
- Oh, yes, I'd forgotten. You told me.
- 323. - Skull Mountain.
- By the deep 20.
- 324. Shallowing fast.
Mr. Briggs, dead slow.
- 325. Dead slow, sir.
- 326. - Confound this fog.
- By the deep 16.
- 327. - What'd she draw, skipper?
- 328. Why don't he
heave to until it clears?
- 329. 'Tain't the old man.
It's that crazy guy, Denham.
- 330. Listen, you hear anything?
- 331. No.
- 332. - Breakers ahead.
- Let go.
- 333. That's not breakers. That's drums.
- 334. Skipper, now the fog's lifted,
do you see anybody?
- 335. - Not a living thing.
- Funny they haven't spotted us.
- 336. I'd think the whole population
would be on the beach.
- 337. Listen.
- 338. Maybe they have spotted us
and are signaling.
- 339. Well, skipper, do you believe me now?
There it is.
- 340. Skull Mountain, the wall.
- 341. Everything just like
on my funny little map.
- 342. - Come on. Let's get started.
- All right.
- 343. Twelve men go with you.
The rest stay aboard.
- 344. Have you got a good man
with those gas bombs?
- 345. I think you better go along.
- 346. You may be able to talk
to these birds.
- 347. All right. Mr. Adams.
- 348. Aye, sir.
- 349. - You'll take charge of the ship.
- Aye, aye, sir.
- 350. - I'm going ashore with you, aren't I?
- You bet.
- 351. I don't think she should
until we know what's there.
- 352. Wait a minute.
Who's running this show?
- 353. I found out from experience to
keep my cast and cameras with me.
- 354. You never can tell
when you'll want them.
- 355. - But you're crazy to risk...
- 356. run along and get
the rifles and ammunition.
- 357. And get me a couple of huskies
to carry my stuff.
- 358. And, Jack, don't forget
the costume box.
- 359. If we're lucky enough,
we may get a swell shot right away.
- 360. Come on, Ann.
- 361. All right, boys, let's go.
- 362. - Take it easy with that camera.
- 363. - Plenty of ammunition for those guns?
- Yes, sir.
- 364. Be careful with those bombs.
- 365. All right, Briggs, now we'll get
a look at Denham's island.
- 366. Stand by to lower away.
- 367. You with the camera,
- 368. - Okay.
- Who's got the bombs?
- 369. - I have, sir.
- Watch your step.
- 370. There's enough trichloride
to put hippos to sleep.
- 371. Aye, aye, sir.
- 372. - What queer-Iooking boats.
- Yeah, outrigger canoes.
- 373. Driscoll, I want two men left here
to guard the boat.
- 374. - All attended to, sir.
- 375. We all ready, then?
- 376. Not a soul in sight.
- 377. The people must all
be gathered up ahead.
- 378. That wall, skipper.
What do you think of that?
- 379. Colossal.
It might almost be Egyptian.
- 380. But what's on the other side
of that wall? I wanna know.
- 381. Who do you suppose
could have built it?
- 382. Oh, I was up on Angkor once.
- 383. That's bigger than this,
and nobody knows who built it.
- 384. Oh, boy, what a chance.
What a picture.
- 385. Come on.
- 386. Hear that?
They're saying, "Kong, Kong. "
- 387. Hope you talk
their lingo, skipper.
- 388. - You catch any words yet?
- I'm not sure.
- 389. Sounds something like the language
Nias Islanders speak.
- 390. What do you suppose is happening?
- 391. They're up to some
of their heathen tricks.
- 392. But don't go rushing out to sea.
- 393. - All right. But isn't it exciting?
- 394. - I wish we'd left you on the ship.
- Oh, I'm so glad you didn't.
- 395. Wait. Easy, now.
Wait till I see what goes on.
- 396. Holy mackerel! What a show.
- 397. Hey, skipper, come here
and get a load of this.
- 398. Did you ever see anything
like that before in your life?
- 399. Boy, if I could only get
a picture before they see us.
- 400. Hey, you with the camera.
- 401. I wanna see.
- 402. Come on, but be careful.
- 403. - Too late. They see us.
- Let's... Let's beat it.
- 404. - Hey, what are you running for?
- No use trying to hide now.
- 405. Everybody come out in plain sight.
- 406. - Say, let's scram out of here.
- Stand still, you fool.
- 407. Steady, boys, bluff them.
- 408. Come on, skipper.
Make him a friendly speech.
- 409. He understands you, skipper.
What's he say?
- 410. - He's telling us to get out.
- Well, talk him out of it.
- 411. Ask him what goes on.
- 412. He says the girl there
is the bride of Kong.
- 413. Great. Find out
what they're gonna do.
- 414. - What's that?
- He must be the witch doctor.
- 415. He says the ceremony is spoiled
because we've seen it.
- 416. Well, calm the old boy down.
What's the word for friend?
- 417. Steady with those rifles, boys.
- 418. - What's that?
- He says, look at the golden woman.
- 419. Yeah. Blonds are scarce
- 420. - A gift for Kong, he says.
- Good Lord!
- 421. Wants to buy her.
- 422. He's offering to trade
six of his women for Ann.
- 423. You got her into this, Denham.
- 424. I'm gonna take her
back to the ship.
- 425. We'd better get out of here
before they think to cut us off.
- 426. Guess so. But tell him we'll be back
tomorrow to make friends.
- 427. Get going, Ann. Don't be scared.
Everything's all right.
- 428. Smile, Ann, and talk to Jack.
- 429. Keep your chin up.
- 430. - Say, why aren't you in bed?
- Oh, I can't sleep.
- 431. The sound of those drums
makes me nervous, I guess.
- 432. I think Denham's off his nut
taking you ashore today.
- 433. Well, I was a little scared.
- 434. - I guess you weren't the only one.
- I wonder what we do next.
- 435. That's just what's worrying me.
- 436. Denham's a fool,
there's no telling what he might...
- 437. ask you to do for this picture.
- 438. After all he's done,
I would take any chance for him.
- 439. Don't talk like that.
- 440. I'd say he's crazy enough
to try anything.
- 441. Well, I won't go back on him.
- 442. When I think of what might've happened
today, if anything had happened to you...
- 443. Then you wouldn't be bothered
having a woman on board.
- 444. Don't laugh. I'm scared for you.
- 445. I'm sort of...
Well, I'm scared of you too.
- 446. Ann...
- 447. I...
- 448. Say...
- 449. I guess I love you.
- 450. Why, Jack, you hate women.
- 451. Yeah, I know.
But you aren't women.
- 452. Say, Ann...
- 453. I don't suppose...
- 454. I mean...
- 455. Well, you don't feel anything
like that about me...
- 456. do you?
- 457. Mr. Driscoll, are you on deck?
- 458. Yes, sir.
- 459. Will you please
come up on the bridge?
- 460. You go on. I'll wait here.
- 461. Yes, sir.
- 462. There, that's about it.
- 463. We'll make absolutely sure
- 464. Oh, must be almost midnight.
- 465. Hey.
- 466. Look at that.
- 467. Torches going through the village.
- 468. Yeah, looks like the night
- 469. Listen to them. Wonder what's up.
- 470. Wish I could take pictures
- 471. - I'd sneak ashore and get a scene now.
- Oh, be sensible.
- 472. We're lucky to be all safe
- 473. Yeah, I guess so.
- 474. - Charlie, have you seen missy?
- Me no see one, two hours.
- 475. When we leave this place?
Me no like.
- 476. Ann.
- 477. Ann.
- 478. All hands on deck!
Everybody on deck!
- 479. Everybody on deck!
All hands on deck!
- 480. Everybody on deck!
Everybody on deck!
- 481. - What's the matter? What's happening?
- What's going on?
- 482. - What's the matter?
- I'm out here.
- 483. Look, sir. Me find on deck.
- 484. - A native bracelet.
- Crazy black man been here.
- 485. What is it?
Who turned out the crew?
- 486. - Look. Someone's been aboard.
- Where's Ann?
- 487. - In her cabin.
- No, she isn't. I just looked.
- 488. - What's the matter, Mr. Driscoll?
- Search the ship. Find Miss Darrow.
- 489. Aye, aye.
- 490. - Ann. Oh, Ann. Did you see her?
- 491. I'll look below.
- 492. - Did you find her?
- Can't find her forward.
- 493. - She's not below.
- Can't find her aft.
- 494. Ann's gone!
- 495. Serve out the rifles. Man the boats.
- 496. Take this ammunition outside.
- 497. Come on, you fellas.
Grab these guns.
- 498. Take these bomb cases
and be careful with them.
- 499. Pass those rifles up over the side.
- 500. Start packing those bombs.
- 501. Me likey go too.
Me likey catch missy.
- 502. This is no job for a cook.
Get out of here. Come on.
- 503. Shove her off, men.
We're going over the side.
- 504. Give way, gentlemen.
Right over there.
- 505. They've taken Ann.
- 506. Hurry. Hurry up.
She must be up ahead here.
- 507. - Come on, men.
- Come on, boys.
- 508. Has anybody seen her?
- 509. Get this gate open. Quick!
- 510. Get up there, men.
Pull that thing back!
- 511. Pull that bar back.
He's got Ann.
- 512. Heave. Heave.
- 513. Heave. Heave.
- 514. - Who's going with me?
- I'll go.
- 515. You stay with half the men
and guard the gate.
- 516. - Don't let them close it.
- We'll take care of it.
- 517. No telling which way
he went in this darkness.
- 518. He's been through here.
- 519. - Look at these broken branches.
- Yeah, look at that. Keep up, fellas.
- 520. It ought to be sunup about now.
- 521. Yeah, just listen to those birds.
- 522. It's dawn all right.
- 523. - What's that?
- Holy mackerel!
- 524. Yeah, that's his track.
Look at the size of that thing.
- 525. He must be as big as a house.
- 526. He's headed this way.
- 527. Come on, fellas, and keep
those guns cocked.
- 528. Hate to have that thing
wrapped around me.
- 529. Here's another one.
We're on his trail.
- 530. Sure, sure. I know that.
Come on. Come on, fellas.
- 531. Hey, look at that!
- 532. Keep quiet.
He doesn't see us.
- 533. Give me one of those bombs.
- 534. Look, it's gonna charge.
- 535. Keep quiet.
- 536. Come on.
- 537. Give him another one.
- 538. Look out!
- 539. Look out. He's still alive.
- 540. Shoot.
- 541. Come on. That got him.
- 542. What do you call this thing?
- 543. Why, something
from the dinosaur family.
- 544. Dinosaur, eh?
- 545. Yes, Jack...
- 546. a prehistoric beast.
- 547. Say, just look at the length
of that brute.
- 548. If I could only bring back
one of these alive.
- 549. - Watch that tail! He's still alive.
- Come on, looks like he's standing up.
- 550. He's through. Come on.
- 551. Come on, men.
- 552. Boy, one swipe of that.
- 553. - Hear that?
- Yeah. What is it?
- 554. That's him, boys. Come on.
- 555. Here. Here's his mark again.
- 556. - There's water ahead.
- He's down in that fog somewhere.
- 557. Yes, that's him splashing through.
- 558. Be careful.
- 559. Now, watch the step-off, boys.
- 560. Must have swum across.
- 561. Yeah, it'll be tough for us
with these guns and bombs.
- 562. - What about these logs for a raft?
- Good idea.
- 563. Come, fellas. Get busy.
- 564. Put those guns down
on the bank and get going.
- 565. Move!
- 566. Come on with those poles.
- 567. All set, everybody?
- 568. Shove off!
- 569. - Hear anything?
- No, he's miles away by now.
- 570. We'll be able to pick up
his trail all right.
- 571. Listen.
- 572. Quiet.
- 573. What was it?
- 574. Hang on, men.
- 575. Look out. Here he comes.
- 576. Come on.
- 577. Come on.
- 578. Hey, Jack. Jack Driscoll.
- 579. - Hey, Jack.
- 580. - It didn't get you, huh?
- No, I got to cover, same as you.
- 581. - Think we're safe?
- There are two of us...
- 582. left alive to save her.
- I can't get across now.
- 583. Don't want you to.
Lam back and get more bombs.
- 584. Why, you wouldn't follow
that beast alone.
- 585. Someone's gotta stay on his trail.
- 586. I'll get a chance,
sneak her away.
- 587. I'll figure a way to signal you
where he's taken her.
- 588. - I guess that's our only out.
- Sure it is. Get going.
- 589. Don't get killed
till you see Englehorn.
- 590. Okay, Jack. Good luck.
- 591. Skipper, this Kong
is the biggest thing in the world.
- 592. He shook those men off that log
like they were flies.
- 593. All those men lost.
- 594. Driscoll said he'd try and signal us
if he found Ann.
- 595. - We'll never see them again.
- Don't give up.
- 596. - There's chance for Driscoll.
- Wait for daylight.
- 597. We'll bridge the ravine.
Where's that case of bombs?
- 598. - Here, sir.
- 599. This monster you've seen,
you think your bombs will stop him?
- 600. If we can get close enough
to use them, you bet they'll stop him.
- 601. - Had any trouble with the natives?
- Yes, after you left.
- 602. - What happened?
- We fired volleys over...
- 603. their heads,
they ran like rabbits.
- 604. Gunpowder's new
in their lives?
- 605. - They're terrified.
- They haven't shown up.
- 606. Take a man on the wall,
keep your eyes peeled.
- 607. We leave at dawn,
if we get a signal or not.
- 608. Yes, sir.
- 609. Hey, look.
- 610. Hey, below, Mr. Denham.
- 611. Mr. Driscoll and the lady,
they're coming back.
- 612. Come on, fellas.
- 613. Are you both all right?
- 614. Pint, Jack. Here.
- 615. I'm all right.
- 616. What happened? How did you do it?
- 617. - Came down the river.
- Oh, Jack.
- 618. There, there, you're safe now.
- 619. We'll have you back on the ship
in no time.
- 620. Wait a minute. What about Kong?
- 621. Well, what about him?
- 622. We came to get a movie,
and we found something worth...
- 623. more than all the movies in the world.
- 624. We've got those gas bombs.
- 625. - If we can capture him alive...
- Why, you're crazy.
- 626. He's on a cliff
where a whole army...
- 627. couldn't get at him.
- Yeah, if he stays there...
- 628. but we've got
something he wants.
- 629. Yeah, something
he won't get again.
- 630. Hey, look out. It's Kong.
- 631. Come around. Come here
and hold the gates. Quick.
- 632. - Denham, natives are coming.
- Good work. Come on.
- 633. Hey, come back
with those bombs, you...
- 634. Come on. Come on. I got him.
- 635. He'll be out for hours.
Send to the ship.
- 636. - For anchor chains and tools.
- What will you do?
- 637. A raft to float him to the ship.
The whole world will pay to see this.
- 638. - No chains will hold that.
- We'll give him more than chains.
- 639. He's always been king of his world,
but we'll teach him fear.
- 640. We're millionaires, boys.
I'll share it with all of you.
- 641. In a few months,
it'll be up in lights on Broadway:
- 642. "Kong, the Eighth Wonder
of the World. "
- 643. Say, what's Denham got anyway?
- 644. It better be good
after all this ballyhoo.
- 645. Heavens, what a mob.
- 646. Well, you would come.
These tickets cost me 20 bucks.
- 647. I can't sit so near the screen.
It hurts my eyes.
- 648. This is not a moving picture,
- 649. What? Mr. Denham
makes those pictures...
- 650. of those darling monkeys
and tigers and things.
- 651. This is in the nature
of a personal appearance.
- 652. Well, I never. I thought
I was gonna see something.
- 653. - Say, what is it anyhow?
- I hear it's a kind of a gorilla.
- 654. Gee, ain't we got enough
of them in New York?
- 655. I don't like to look at him.
- 656. It makes me think
of that awful day on the island.
- 657. I wouldn't have brought you,
but you know how Denham insisted.
- 658. We had to come
when he said it would help the show.
- 659. Do you think we'll
make a lot of money?
- 660. Well, enough to pay him back
for these clothes anyway.
- 661. It's the first time I ever had on
one of these open-front suits.
- 662. Hello, there. Just in time.
Gee, Ann, you look great.
- 663. I'm glad I dressed you up for this show.
Well, Jack, $ 10,000 in the box office.
- 664. - Not bad for one night.
- That's a lot of money.
- 665. We're gonna do that every night.
- 666. - Look at the size of that.
- I hope he's tied up tight.
- 667. Sure he is.
Denham's taking no chances.
- 668. Here are the press.
Come in, boys.
- 669. - This is Ms. Darrow and Mr. Driscoll.
- How do you do?
- 670. Mr. Driscoll saved you from the ape?
- 671. Yes. He was alone too.
All the sailors with him had been killed.
- 672. - How did you ever tackle that baby?
- Well, Mr. Denham got him.
- 673. The rest of us
were running scared.
- 674. He had the nerve
to stand there and chuck bombs.
- 675. Oh, so you're the hero.
Come on, give us a story.
- 676. Here now, wait a minute.
Lay off me, boys.
- 677. Miss Darrow is the story.
If it hadn't been for her...
- 678. we couldn't have gotten near Kong.
He followed her.
- 679. - Beauty and the beast, huh?
- That's it.
- 680. Play up that angle,
beauty and the beast.
- 681. Kong could have stayed safe...
- 682. but he couldn't stay away
- 683. - That's your story, boys.
- That's a lead story, all right.
- 684. - How about some pictures?
- Just a minute.
- 685. Come on the stage. Take pictures
in front of the audience.
- 686. I'll make a speech and tell them
about Kong, Darrow...
- 687. Driscoll. When I call you,
come take pictures.
- 688. - Okay.
- That's fine.
- 689. Stand by, Ann, when I call you.
- 690. Now, now, it's all right.
- 691. We've knocked some of the fight
out of him since you saw him.
- 692. Ladies and gentlemen, I am here tonight
to tell you a very strange story.
- 693. A story so strange that no one
will believe it.
- 694. But, ladies and gentlemen,
seeing is believing...
- 695. and we, my partners and I...
- 696. have brought back the living proof
of our adventure.
- 697. an adventure in which 12
of our party met horrible deaths.
- 698. And now, ladies and gentlemen,
before I tell you any more...
- 699. I am going to show you the greatest
thing your eyes ever beheld.
- 700. He was a king and a god
in the world he knew...
- 701. but now he comes to civilization
merely a captive...
- 702. a show to gratify your curiosity.
- 703. Ladies and gentlemen, look at Kong.
- 704. The Eighth Wonder of the World.
- 705. And now I want to introduce
Miss Ann Darrow...
- 706. the bravest girl
I have ever known.
- 707. There the beast
and here the beauty.
- 708. She has lived through an experience
no other woman ever dreamed of.
- 709. And she was saved from the very grasp
of Kong by her future husband.
- 710. I want you to meet a very brave
gentleman, Mr. John Driscoll.
- 711. And now before I tell you
the full story of our voyage...
- 712. I will ask the gentlemen
of the press to come forward...
- 713. so that the audience may see them
take the first photographs...
- 714. of Kong and his captors.
- 715. All right, boys.
- 716. Miss Darrow first, alone.
Stand in front of Kong, Ann.
- 717. - All set? Make it a good one.
- 718. Shoot.
- 719. Don't be alarmed. Those chains
are made of chrome steel.
- 720. - It's all right, Ann.
- Get them together, boys.
- 721. - They're going to be married tomorrow.
- Put your arm around her, Driscoll.
- 722. Wait a minute. Hold on.
- 723. - He thinks you're attacking the girl.
- All the roaring, swell picture.
- 724. Come on, it's loose!
- 725. Send the riot squad and ambulances.
Kong has escaped.
- 726. You're safe now, dear.
- 727. It's like a horrible dream.
- 728. It's like being back
on the island again.
- 729. Now, it's all right. Don't worry.
- 730. I'm gonna stay right here with you.
- 731. Anyhow, you know
they're bound to get him.
- 732. Jack, he's climbing up
- 733. - He's got Ann. He's taken her up.
- The roof, quick.
- 734. Ann, Ann!
- 735. How can we follow him?
What'll we do?
- 736. Fire department searchlights
on the roof.
- 737. Yeah, they'll keep him in sight.
- 738. Attention all stations.
Kong is going west.
- 739. He is making for
the Empire State Building.
- 740. Stand by for further reports.
- 741. - If he goes up there, what can we do?
- We won't get near him.
- 742. Kong is climbing
the Empire State Building.
- 743. He is still carrying Ann Darrow.
That is all.
- 744. That licks us.
- 745. - One thing we haven't thought of.
- 746. Airplanes. If he should put
- 747. and they fly close
to pick him without her...
- 748. You're right. Planes.
- 749. Call the field.
- 750. - Here come the planes.
- They'll get him.
- 751. - Can they shoot him and not hit Ann?
- They'll be shooting.
- 752. Ann. Ann, hang on, dear.
- 753. - Ann, are you all right?
- 754. Just a moment. Wait a minute.
- 755. Let me through.
My name is Denham.
- 756. Just a moment. Oh, lieutenant.
- 757. - Lieutenant, I'm Carl Denham.
- Carl Denham.
- 758. Denham? Oh, that's the man
that captured the monster.
- 759. Well, Denham, the airplanes got him.
- 760. Oh, no, it wasn't the airplanes.
- 761. It was beauty killed the beast.
