Skippy

Delos W. Lovelace's novelization of the King Kong screenplay claims that two years prior to the events of the film, the skipper met his old friend Carl Denham in Singapore, where he told Carl the story of his map, knowing he would be interested in it. X years beforehand, the skipper had rescued a canoe full of half-dead islanders in the sea. Only one was left alive, and he perished before they reached port. Before succumbing, the man described to the skipper their home and its location, from which he created a map, and some cultural notes, including their fear of Kong, a monster living beyond their village wall.

Darrow

Ann Darrow was a midwestern farm girl turned starving actress who is either implied to be, or outright stated to be an orphan. In the film and novelization of its screenplay, she mentions having an estranged uncle, who, in Judith Conway's licensed 1983 adaptation is purported to have swindled her out of her inheritance from her parents deaths. After fleeing to New York to become an actress ((SAUCE)), she landed roles as an extra in a few pictures at the ((STUDIO NAME)) lot, and even got a single speaking part before it shut down.

Driscoll

Little information about Driscoll's early life is given in most adaptations of the story, but Judith Conway's 1983 adaptation which was published with authorization from the Merian C. Cooper estate, claims that he ran away from college to pursue a life of adventure at sea, a decision his mother eventually forgave him for making.

Denhamb

Despite his shrewd and straightforward approach to life, Denham still has the passions and eye of an artist, and takes his craft very seriously. As such he gained a reputation as the "craziest man in Hollywood" for his daring and dangerous shoots. One such shot cost him a cameraman, who fled a charging rhinoceros, despite Denham's standing by with a rifle ready to down the beast if it git too close. After this, Denham elected to act as his own cameraman.

While some interpretations depict Denham as well-meaning and in some ways heroic, many opt to emphasize his greed and associated carelessness with human and animal life as a character flaw.

BOYS DENHAM

Denham hired Captain Englehorn and his ship the Venture to take him and his actress Ann Darrow to shoot a picture on an unknown island in the South Pacific, which he had learned of years prior from a Norwegian skipper. The boat approached the island in a dense fog before they stopped at the sound of breaker waves and drums. Denham was eager to get filming, despite the angry, warning tone of the music. The captain soon found a channel in, and within minutes the boats were loaded and ready to go ashore. Denham warned the second mate Briggs about the trichloride bombs he was carrying before embarking for the island.

BOYS ENGLEHORN

Englehorn was the captain of the Venture, a boat hired by eccentric film director Carl Denham to take him and his actress Ann Darrow to an unknown island in the South Pacific. As they approached Denham's legendary island, the ship entered a dense fog that caused the sailors to wonder why they did not lay anchor and wait for it to clear. They all knew that Denham was the reason, and the two men stood in the prow listening for the breaker waves that would notify the captain of the reef surrounding the island.

History

The Mighty Kong

Ann worked as an extra in films before falling on hard times and attempting to steal an apple. She was caught in the act but saved by C.B. Denham, who talked her into signing on as his lead actress in a film, which ann agreed to with the hopes of becoming a movie star. She made her way to the Java Queen, C.B.'s ship, where she met the cabin boy Ricky and his monkey Chips. They go onto the ship, where they are nearly crushed by falling cargo, which makes the first mate Jack Driscoll scream at them to go below decks. Ann then begins to doubt her plight for fame, but Ricky reminds her that she has nothing to lose by trying. Ricky later fell ill, and Ann took over his duties and delivered dinner to the Captain. Denham and Driscoll were dining with him, and did not recognize Darrow under her rain gear, and Driscoll repeatedly insulted her for being a woman and a jinx. She then dumped clam chowder on his head. After six weeks at sea, they arrived at Skull Island, where C.B. upset the natives, and they were chased back to the ship, where she and Driscoll decided they were in love. She was then kidnapped by natives, and she was taken up to a volcano, where she was taken by Kong. Kong took her to his volcano lair, where he doused her in a waterfall and threw her in a pond before drying her off with his breath. They were then attacked by dinosaurs and a snake, so Kong put her down, and Driscoll took her back to the shore, where Kong was incapacitated with gas bombs and taken back to New York, where Ann starred in a show with him. Ann felt pity for the captive ape, but he escaped upon perceiving Ann was in danger. Ann hid, but watched as he fell from the Empire State Building after a failed attempt to capture Kong alive, but he survived.

Kong: King of Skull Island King Kong of Skull Island

Carl Denham is a fictional film producer and director who debuted in the 2005 illustrated novel Kong: King of Skull Island. This book serves as both a sequel and prequel to the original King Kong story as conceived by Merian C. Cooper, and is authorized by his estate. That same year, a rewrite of the public domain novelization from 1932, titled Merian C. Cooper's King Kong was published using the estate's rights to the intellectual property, and established a baseline for the differences between the world of RKO's 1933 film, and for the estate-authorized King Kong of Skull Island intellectual property, and the various projects set within it.

History

Kong: King of Skull Island

Feeling remorseful for Kong's death, Denham disappeared after the incident and left his wife and son Vincent Denham behind in New York City in an alleged attempt to take Kong's body back to Skull Island.

Merian C. Cooper's King Kong

Doc Savage: Skull Island

After Kong’s drop from the Empire State Building, Denham used the last of his money to help Ann Darrow and Jack Driscoll elope before ducking the enraged public and taking to heavy drinking. He was soon tracked down by MONKE MAN and taken to Doc Savage’s office for questioning.
