In the mid-60's, after ONE MILLION YEARS B.C, Hammer Films announced that they were planning a remake of King Kong. This never happened. What we have here is a "What if?" screenplay, done in the Hammer style. Instead of New York City in the 1930's, it's England in the early 1900's. It's not a movie being shot but a scientific expedition led by Sir Denholm Carlson (portrayed by Peter Cushing) and sleazy showman Baxter Wilson (Christopher Lee). Kong's love interest, Anna, is Carlson's daughter. Things pretty much unfold the same way they do in the other Kong flicks, ending in London with Kong scaling Big Ben, with Anna in his hands.
This script is right on the mark--and highly entertaining. Although it should have been proof-read a few more times (there's dozens of typos) the author clearly has a love of his subject matter. I also dug the references and nods to the other Kong remakes, particularly the '76 version. Highly recommended.
