Overview

Rhodes Reason is the requisite Hollywood "name" actor in the Japanese-produced King Kong Escapes. While hacking through the jungle, expedition leader Nelson Reason and his companions are attacked by a dinosaur. They are rescued by King Kong, who since his traumatic experiences in New York has evidently changed his spots and become a lovable old Joe. Susan Linda Miller, the prettiest member of Nelson's expedition, takes quite a liking to the big ape Kong, not Nelson, and the feeling is reciprocated. The emphasis then shifts to dome-headed mad scientist Dr. Who Eisei Amamoto, whose plans to take over the world include building a huge "Mechni-Kong," a robot designed to put the real Kong out of commission if Amamoto sounds familiar to you, that's because his dialogue is dubbed by Paul Frees, the voice behind Boris Badenov. The climactic battle between the two Kongs is staged on a tinker-toy replica of Tokyo Tower -- hardly as imposing a structure as the Empire State Building, but consider what they're working with here. The Rhodes Reason/Linda Miller scenes were directed in Canada by Arthur Rankin Jr., the man responsible for the King Kong animated TV series of the late 1960s.
