DISSOLVE IN on the exterior of a bank, leading, in the
               background down into a hollow filled with fog. The men come
               in from camera left and look down. (Fog Hollow set from "most
               Dangerous Game")

                             (following tracks with
                         There's his foot again --
                             (following director)
                         -- he's down in that hollow where
                         the fog is, some place.

                         There's water down there. Here.

               They listen. Sounds of splashing.

                         That's him, splashing through. Come

               They run down into fog. (CURTAIN EFFECT)

               EXT. STREAM - FULL SHOT - DAY

               The water's edge, as the men run down through heavy fog left
               to right. A couple of fallen trees, floated down with the

               in the mud, Kong splashing out of stream on other side can be
               heard as men come up. (Fog Hollow Set)

                             (looks at footprint, then
                              across stream)
                         He must have swum across.

                         That's out for us. We can't swim
                         with guns and bombs.

                             (looks about, sees log,
                              gets an idea)
                         How about these --
                             (indicates logs)
                         -- for a raft?

                         Yeah, that's it. A raft.

                         All right, boys, gets busy.

                                   1ST SAILOR
                         Get some vines, Tim.

               Tim, the sailor to be used in tree, runs for vines. Other
               sailors run to logs.

                                   2ND SAILOR
                             (at log)

               logs together with liana vines. Heavy fog.
               The arms and bombs are loaded on the raft. So are they men.
               They last of them are just getting on.

                         Don't get the arms wet, boys.

                                   SAILOR A
                             (guarding them)
                         I'm watching 'em.

                                   SAILOR B
                             (helping another on)
                         Easy now.

                             (shouts, looking around)
                         All set? All set, everybody?

                         All set. Let 'er go.


                         Shove off.

               A couple of sailors; still on shore, push the raft out until
               they are waist deep, then jump aboard. Others use poles to
               push it towards the opposite bank. Ad lib, "Push -- put your
               back in it, etc."

                         boys -- weight in the center.

                                   1ST SAILOR
                             (stops poling to stare)
                         Holy mackerel -- look at that.

               All look.

               EXT. STREAM - LONG SHOT - DAY

               A huge scaly head rears up from the water to look down on the

               arms. The head of the Dinosaur rears up from the water behind
               the boat, upsetting; as he comes up under it, the raft with
