The submarine «Explorer», commanded by Carl Nelson, comes upon Mondo Island where they find King Kong alive. Kong takes a liking to the ships nurse Susan Watson. But as soon as news of his existence hits the world, the giant ape is abducted by Dr. Who, a scientist in the employ of a foreign country, who is attempting to perfect his own robot version of Kong in order to dig for Element X and create weapons. Especially amusing is the heroines relationship with the ape rather than in King Kong a fragile romance that verges on a fairytale, this is more like a girl with a 40-foot puppy dog. «Go after the ship», she orders him at one point. (Richard Scheib)
