Denham: Ladies and gentlemen, I'm here tonight to tell you a very strange story — a story so strange that no one will believe it — but, ladies and gentlemen, seeing is believing. And we — my partners and I — have brought back the living proof of our adventure, an adventure in which twelve of our party met horrible death. And now, ladies and gentlemen, before I tell you any more, I'm going to show you the greatest thing your eyes have ever beheld. He was a king and a god in the world he knew, but now he comes to civilization merely a captive — a show to gratify your curiosity. Ladies and gentlemen, look at Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World.
[The curtain rises to reveal Kong, miserable and enslaved in chains, tied to a metal post. The audience is shocked and amazed]
Denham: And now I want to introduce Miss Ann Darrow; the bravest girl I have ever known
[Ann comes on stage as the audience applauds wildly]
Denham: There the Beast. And here the Beauty. She has lived through an experience no other woman ever dreamed of. And she was saved from the very grasp of Kong by her future husband. I want you to meet a very brave gentleman, Mr. John Driscoll.
[Jack comes on stage, receiving cheers from the audience too.]
Denham: And now before I tell you the full story of our voyage, I'm going to ask the gentlemen of the press to come forward, so the audience can have the privilege of seeing them take the first photographs of Kong and his captors. [to the reporters] All right boys.
[The reporters join on stage and prepare their cameras. Kong watches and begins to grow more alert]
Denham: [To the reporters] Mrs. Darrow first alone. [To Ann] Please stand in front of Kong.
[Ann poses for the picture in front of Kong]
Reporter: All set, Jack. Okay boys, make it a good one!
[The reporters begin to take pictures. Kong roars angrily as the flashbulbs blind his eyes, frightening and enraging the mighty ape. Ann and the audience watch nervously]
Denham: Don't be alarmed, ladies and gentlemen. Those chains are made of chrome steel.
Driscoll: It's alright, Ann.
Denham: Get them together, boys! They're going to be married tomorrow!
Reporter: Put your arm around her Driscoll!
[The reporters resume to take pictures again. Kong roars furiously again, thinking that the flashbulbs are guns being fired at Ann]
Denham: Hey wait a minute! Wait a minute! Hold on! He thinks your attacking the girl!
Reporter: Ah, let him roar! It's a swell picture!
[The reporters carelessly begins taking pictures again. Kong again roars enraged, reaching his breaking point after all that had happened to him since he was captured. He tugs at full strength until one of the chains snaps clean in half!! The audience screams and starts to run out of theater in panic as Kong breaks his other cuffs with his free arm]
Reporter: IT'S LOOSE!!!
[The terrified reporters, Ann, Jack, and Carl all flee from the stage as Kong breaks the last remaining cuffs and throws one into the panicking crowd. Within seconds, he is completely free. He smashes out of the theater's backstage door and into the city.]
