In 'King Kong' (1933), film director Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong) and actress Ann Darrow (Fay Wray) arrive on a prehistoric island in the hope of capturing a giant ape, worshipped as a god by the local inhabitants.The mighty Kong shows his sensitive side by falling for Ann, and, after his transportation to New York, rampages across the city in search of his new love. In 'King Kong vs Godzilla' (1963), a pharmaceutical company manager undertakes an expedition in search of the mystical berries that confer gigantic size on the legendary Kong. At the same time, a team of American pilots have discovered the frozen tomb of the fearsome Godzilla, and when they thaw him out, the stage is set for a titanic battle between the two oversize creatures. In 'King Kong Escapes' (1968), a team of scientists build a mechanical Kong to dig for a radioactive element at the Earth's core.
