Discovering a giant ape on a mysterious island, an oil company traps him and ships him back to New York to be exploited. However, Kong is so love-stricken that chains alone cannot stop him from possessing and protecting his love - a naive actress the oil company has hired. This spectacular remake of the 1933 classic was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Cinematography. Starring Jessica Lange, in her first major role, as the beauty who captures Kong's heart; Charles Grodin is the greedy promoter who snares the beast for his own selfish aims. Jeff Bridges co-stars in the chest-beating adventure sparked with super special effects.
