King Kong (I). King Kong (I) was created by Merian Cooper and Edgar Wallace (Viola Beech, Brigand, Wireless Bryce, Felix Carfew, Dixon, Elegant Edward, Inspector Elk, Educated Evans, Four Square Jane, Dixon Hawke, Heine, Felix Jenks, Just Men, Larry Loman, Superintendent Minter, Policy Sleuth, Oliver Rater, John G. Reeder, The Ringer, Sanders, York Symon, Tam o’the Scoots, Inspector Wade, Kate Westhanger) and appeared in the film King Kong (1933).

King Kong (I) is a gigantic ape, ten times as tall as a man, who is discovered on the Island of the Mists (a.k.a. “Skull Island”) somewhere in the South Pacific, and is brought to New York City as a circus attraction by showman Carl Denham. Kong breaks free, climbs to the top of the Empire State Building, and is eventually gunned down by several biplanes.
