Carl Denham, the showman who brought Kong to New York, returns to Skull Island in search of a rumored treasure. He finds diamonds, all right. And something even more remarkable - Kong's son, a spunky 12-footer with a winning personality and his dad's awesome strength.
The filmmakers who created King Kong kept the king-sized excitement going with this sequel, released the same year as the original. Robert Armstrong reprises the role of Denham, paired with a new damsel in distress, played by Helen Mack. The two rescue Kong Jr. from a quicksand pit and get in return a devoted protector who defends them from fierce prehistoric monsters, including a giant cave bear. But when a mighty earthquake strikes Skull Island, even the son of Kong may not be powerful enough to save them.
A quickie sequel to the tremendously successful KING KONG, this movie was released in the same year as the original movie. One of Kong's captors returns to the island where they discovered him, and finds a little baby ape who looks set to follow in his father's footsteps.
