The Mystery Speaker


Ann is an unemployed actress reduced to homelessness by the Great Depression. Rescued from the streets by filmmaker Carl Denham, she's been travelling with him to Skull Island aboard the tramp steamer S.S. Venture and met a love interest in the ship's first mate, Jack Driscoll.

Once on the island, she's been captured by natives who subsequently offered her as a sacrifice to Kong, whom they worship as a God. Despite Ann's sheer terror, Kong fell in love with her and took her to his home inside a massive cavern atop Skull Mountain. She's been rescued from the cavern by Driscoll and his comrades, only to be ruthlessly pursued back to the native village by an enraged Kong, who would stop at nothing to get her back. As a result, an intense battle ensued, culminating in the destruction of much of the village and ultimately, the gigantic ape's live capture. Currently Ann is an unemployed actress.

Can you guess who is going to be the Mystery Speaker?
