King Kong Escapes


1968       Akira Takarada

KING KONG FIGHTS HIS ELECTRONIC REPLICA FOR WORLD CONTROL IN King Kong Escapes

Holding beautiful Linda Miller in his massive fur-covered paw, gigantic King Kong climbs a 1000-font television tower to wage mortal combat with a man-made robot replica of himself as the hair-raising climax of 'King Kong Escapes," a Toho Production in Technicolor released by Universal, coming to the Theatre. The climactic combat of this all new thriller is but one of several encounters between the live King Kong and the robot replica, constructed by sinister forces, in an effort to conquer the world.

Quite by accident, the live monster is found on an uncharted island in the Pacific Ocean by Rhodes Reason and Miss Miller, members of a United Nations nuclear submarine crew patrolling the area. When the discovery is announced to the world during a news conference at the 13. N - New York headquarters, workers for the evil scientist capture the monster. They use tranquilizing bombs to quiet it, and a fleet of helicopters to transport it to

their snow-covered industrial complex. There the giant, under a hypnotic spell induced by the scientist, is put to work tearing radioactive material from the ground -- work that has jammed the electronic equipment on the robot.

As King Kong claws the material, a reaction sets in causing fission-like eye- searing pyrotechnics, breaking the monster's hypnotic spell. The creature rims away to sea, turning up in Japan, where the scientist and his men have already brought their robot Kong hoping to capture the real animal. The city-crushing battle ends in the climax mentioned above.

William Keenan wrote an inventive screenplay which producer and director Arthur Rankin, Jr., brings to the screen in stunning realism. Action played in the snow-covered industrial complex points up the creative planning that went into making this exciting and realistic film.

The 35th birthday of the most famous monster in films is marked by the Universal release of the Toho Production in Technicolor, King Kong Escapes. It was in the early thirties that 'King Kong' burst upon the scene to become one of the most successful movies of the era. The all new 'King Kong Escapes" is far superior in its technique showing the tremendous advances made in the cinematic art, and is in beautiful Technicolor.
