Sequel to the classic 1933 'King Kong'. Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong) goes in search of riches on Skull Island - the island where he first found Kong. Not only does Denham discover treasure, he also finds Kong's son. Denham and his female companion Helene (Helen Mack) form a bond with the ape, saving him from quicksand, and Kong repays them by protecting them from any dangerous creatures they encounter. However, both man and beast are at risk when an earthquake hits the island.
