(mbc.net) Ann Darrow (Naomi Watts) is a struggling actress looking for a big break.  When a script written by her favorite playwright, Adrien Brody (Jack Driscoll) comes along, she signs off without hesitation.  The film is set on a mysterious island isolated from civilization, where its creatures have evolved separate from the rest of the world's.

Things turn sour upon arrival however when villagers offer Ann to its resident 25-foot gorilla, Kong as a sacrifice.  Surprisingly, Kong falls in love with Darrow and protects her with fervor.  The film's director sees profit rather than compassion in the creaturethough, and knocks it unconscious for exhibition in New York City.  What happens next is both disastrous and saddening.

King Kong earned an astonishing $550 million worldwide and won 3 Oscars.
