One of the scenes involving pterodactyls flying in the far background was matted into Citizen Kane (1941) during the scene where Kane and "friends" make for the beach from Xanadu - this was done to save production costs. See more »
Carl Denham played by Robert Armstrong flees New York City leaving behind the law suits accrued from his King Kong disaster. Denham meets up with same ship captain (Frank Reicher) and ship that brought the original Kong to America. Having no luck as commercial shippers; they decide to go back to the Isle of Kong and find an offspring of the eighth wonder of the world. Special effects were very good, but few. The cast is rounded out by Helen Mack and John Marston. The thrills and excitement of the original did not lapse over to the sequel.
