Performers, Cast and Crew:
Picking up where the 1977 version left off, "King Kong Lives" resuscitates the mighty ape through the miracle of modern medicine and brings him together with what will be the love of his life, Lady Kong.
Sequel to 1976's "King Kong". In the finale of that film, Kong fell from the top of the Twin Towers onto the concrete below. Here, Kong is shown to have survived the fall, but is being kept alive via life-support and needs an artificial heart. Meanwhile, an adventurer in Borneo finds and brings to the U.S. a female Kong, since her blood will aid in the heart operation. Naturally the two apes meet, begin a romance -- and escape from captivity, creating chaos and destruction everywhere they go. But unfortunately for the simian sweethearts, the U.S. Army is hot on their trail...
