[Hilda sings Runaway Blues] Carl Denham: Hey, she's got something there. Englehorn: It certainly isn't a voice!
Hilda: [tries to coax her show's released monkeys out of the trees] Tony, won't you please come down? Tony? Tony? Carl Denham: You'll never catch a monkey that way. Hilda: Did you ever catch a monkey? Carl Denham: Did *I* ever catch...? [dry chuckle] Carl Denham: Lady, you'd be surprised.
Carl Denham: Skipper, believe it or not, there's a little Kong! Helstrom: What? A little K -... How little?
Helstrom: [stops Hilda in the streets of Dakang] Oh, ah, miss... I heard about your father. If I could do anything... Hilda: [ice cold] You've done enough. You killed my father. Helstrom: Killed? Why... what? The tent caught fire... Hilda: My father was beaten over the head. He wasn't burned. What do you think the magistrate will say to that when he gets here? Helstrom: You can't accuse me! You mustn't dare... Hilda: How do you know I wasn't? Unless you were? How do you know what my father said me before he... before he died? Helstrom: [scared] He... What did he say? Hilda: The magistrate will be here in a few days. I'll tell him. Helstrom: [tries to be threatening] You'd better be careful! What are you going to tell the magistrate? Hilda: You can just wonder about that 'till he gets here.
- The Little Kong puppet is actually the "long face" Kong model used for the T-Rex battle in King Kong (1933). For this film the armature (metal skeleton) was stripped of its rubber and fur and remodeled to look like a younger albino gorilla.
Recordings of Fay Wray's screams from King Kong (1933) were used in this movie.
The name for the "junior" Kong was Kiko, though it was never used. RKO's promoters gave "Little Kong" the name Kiko after completion of the film. Kiko is an abbreviation of the name King Kong.
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.
