Stacy Dohm:
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")

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

                                   DRISCOLL
                             (looks)
                         There's water down there. Here.

               They listen. Sounds of splashing.

                                   DENHAM
                         That's him, splashing through. Come
                         on.

               They run down into fog. (CURTAIN EFFECT)



               EXT. STREAM - FULL SHOT - DAY

               The men run down the muddy bank through heavy fog towards the
               water, left to right. (Fog Hollow set)



               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
               current, lie half submerged by the bank. Kong's footprints is
               in the mud, Kong splashing out of stream on other side can be
               heard as men come up. (Fog Hollow Set)

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

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

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

                                   DENHAM
                         Yeah, that's it. A raft.

                                   DRISCOLL
                         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)
                         Pull 'em clear now.

               LAP DISSOLVE - EXT. STREAM - FULL SHOT - DAY

               DISSOLVE IN on the raft, now completed. They have bound the
               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.

                                   DENHAM
                         Don't get the arms wet, boys.

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

                                   SAILOR B
                             (helping another on)
                         Easy now.

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

                                   SAILORS
                         All set. Let 'er go.

                                   TOGETHER
                         O.K.

                                   DRISCOLL
                         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."



               EXT. STREAM - GENERAL VIEW - DAY

               The raft moves across the stream through heavy fog.
               (Miniature raft and miniature men.)



               EXT. STREAM - FULL OR MED. SHOT - DAY

               This shot moves through fog with men as they pole raft.

                                   DENHAM
                         Easy now -- keep her against the
                         current.

                                   DRISCOLL
                         Keep your weight in the center,
                         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
               raft, drifting, horrible. It is the head of a Dinosaur. In
               this the raft can also be seen. (Miniature raft, miniature
               beast.) Heavy fog. The men shriek in wild commotion.



               EXT. STREAM - FULL OR MED. SHOT - DAY

               The angle which moves with the raft as the men, yelling
               wildly, attempt to pole the raft towards the shore. One or
               two men are pushed off in the panic. Everyone shoves the
               wrong way. Heavy fog here.



               EXT. STREAM - LONG SHOT - DAY

               The Dinosaur dives and starts for the raft in a series of
               undulating, sea-serpent dives. Wild panic and shrieks on the
               raft. Heavy fog. (Miniature raft, men and beast.)



               EXT. STREAM - FULL OR MED. SHOT - DAY

               The angle which moves with the raft. It has come to a
               standstill now as the men shove in the wrong directions,
               shouting at each other. Some are trying vainly to reach 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
               its occupants. They fall, screaming, into the stream. Fog.
               (Miniature projection)



               EXT. STREAM - MED. SHOT - DAY

               A sailor drowning. Flash. Fog. Tank.

               before) Heavy Fog.



               EXT. STREAM - FULL SHOT - DAY

               The men run out of the water on the far bank. The beast can
               be heard behind them. They run up, left to right. Heavy fog.

               EXT. STREAM - FULL SHOT - DAY

               The men run up another section of bank. Either away from

               EXT. STREAM - GENERAL VIEW - DAY

               The men run up the bank. One man (Tim) is in the rear. He
               sees the Dinosaur following through the fog (double print

               shot) Fog. (Fog Hollow Set)



               EXT. STREAM - FULL SHOT - DAY

               The men run out of the fog at the top of the bank. (Fog

               EXT. STREAM - LONG SHOT - DAY

               The men run left to right, followed by the beast. Tim, the
               last man, runs towards and into the jungle, with the Dinosaur

               fog. (Most Dangerous Game set)



               EXT. BANK - FULL SHOT - DAY

               The men climb a bank. (Most Dangerous Game Ledge set)



               EXT. STREAM - FULL SHOT - DAY

               Tim runs up to the base of a tree, climbs it. (Real man, real
               tree from Most Dangerous Game set)

Stacy Dohm:
The men climb higher on the bank.



               EXT. ASPHALT PIT - FULL SHOT - DAY

               They climb over the top of the bank. Shrubbery masks the
               foreground. In the background is seen an asphalt morass,
               backed by jungle. Driscoll in the lead here. Denham the last
               man. (Most Dangerous Game ledge set for the foreground, matte
               and miniature for background). They hear the sound of the
               Dinosaur and the shrieks of the sailor they left behind. All
               turn.

                                   SAILOR A
                             (stares)
                         It's Tim he's after.

               All stare as they see --



               EXT. TREE - LONG SHOT - DAY

               The Dinosaur approaches the sailor who has climbed to the
               tree top. He shrieks in terror. (Miniature man and tree)



               EXT. ASPHALT PIT - MED. SHOT - DAY

               The men stare at this, horrified.

                                   DENHAM
                         Hasn't anybody got a gun?

               Each man looks at the next fellow, hoping he has saved a gun.

                                   DRISCOLL
                         They're all at the bottom of the
                         lake.

                                   DENHAM
                             (to sailor who carried
                              bombs)
                         Then gimme one of those bombs.

                                   BOMB CARRIER
                         I had to let them go to keep from
                         drowning.

                                   DENHAM
                         You fool.

                                   BOMB CARRIER
                         You lost your gun.

               All stare back at tree as the doomed sailor's shrieks for
               help grow louder.



               EXT. TREE - LONG SHOT - DAY

               The Dinosaur comes up to the man in the tree. (Miniature man
               and tree)



               EXT. TREE TOP - MED. SHOT - DAY

               The man in the tree shrieks. The Dinosaur's head comes into
               the shot, about to seize him. (Real man, real tree from Most
               Dangerous Game, miniature projection background)



               EXT. TREE - LONG SHOT - DAY

               The Dinosaur seizes the man. His cries cease abruptly as the
               teeth crunch into him.



               EXT. ASPHALT PIT - FULL OR MED. SHOT - DAY

               The men at the top of the bank look sickened. They stare as
               they see --



               EXT. TREE - LONG SHOT - DAY

               The Dinosaur carries the sailor away into the jungle.



               EXT. DITCH - FULL SHOT - DAY

               They turn away, lead by Denham, then stop as they see, over
               the shrubbery, Kong retreating towards them with the girl,
               from the jungle background into a mire which lies in the
               middle distance, masked by foreground shrubbery and backed by
               jungle.

               (MATTE) This mire is an asphalt pit. In the center is a dry
               mound to which Kong springs. He is pursued by two huge three
               horned beasts (tricerotops) who, trying to follow, find
               themselves mired.

                                   DRISCOLL
                             (to men)
                         Down! Down!

               All throw themselves down behind shrubbery.

                                   DENHAM
                         If we only had some of those bombs!

               (MED. SHOT of men crouching behind shrubbery, as he speaks
               this last line)

               A terrific fight now ensues between Kong and the three-horned
               beasts. Kong picks up boulders and hurls them down on the
               beasts as they try to reach him through the asphalt mire. He
               kills two. The third retreats.

               During this, the men exit cautiously, camera right, and
               reappear in the background, camera right. (Matte) The three
               horned beast sees them. He charges them. They run out, camera
               right, with the three-horned beast following.



               EXT. JUNGLE A - FULL SHOT - DAY

               SIDE ANGLE - PAN to follow men as they run, left to right.



               EXT. JUNGLE B - FULL SHOT - DAY

               The men to run to camera. No beast in this shot.



               EXT. JUNGLE C - FULL SHOT - DAY

               REVERSE ANGLE as they run away from camera. A low-hanging
               branch bars their way. They run under it. The sailor with the
               striped trousers is last. He turns to look back at the beast,
               whose noise behind them can be heard, and strikes his head
               against the branch. He falls, picks himself up.

                                   SAILOR WITH STRIPED TROUSERS
                             (as he picks himself up,
                              holding head, dazed)
                         Boys - boys, where are you?

               He looks up into camera, first dazed, then, as his head
               clears, he sees the beast charging. He shrieks and runs off
               camera right.

Stacy Dohm:
EXT. CREATION SHOT - FULL SHOT - DAY

               The old shot from Creation. The striped-trousers sailor runs
               through the woods, followed by the three-horned beast. He
               seeks refuge behind a tree. The beast knocks over the tree.
               It falls upon the sailor, pinning him down. The beast gores
               him to death.



               EXT. LOG - RAVINE - FULL SHOT - DAY

               The remaining men run towards a deep ravine, across which a
               huge tree has fallen. Ravine is background. Kong is crossing
               this log with the girl, right to left. Men run in left to

               foreground. In the background may be seen entering a huge two
               horned beast, (Arsinotherium). He is rooting in the ground.
               He lifts his head, sniffs, smelling the men. He begins to
               lumber towards them with gathering speed. They run out, left
               to right.



               EXT. LOG  - FULL SHOT - DAY

               The men run in from left to right, led by Driscoll. He waves
               them on. In the foreground is a huge tree. In the background

               log. The men follow, shouting.



               EXT. CLEARING - FULL SHOT - DAY
