This Spoils the Ending
In the Movie In the Movie
   The story is more condensed at 100 minutes. The remake with a longer running time explores older plotlines, develops new ones and adds new characters.
   Carl Denham seems to have no trouble getting his movie financed. He flees the studio in fear of getting shut down and he flees New York on the Venture before the authorities can catch up with him.
   Jack Driscoll is the first mate on the SS Venture and keeps a rather sexist attitude towards Ann before falling for her. Driscoll is a successful playwright whom Ann is already infatuated with. Denham has to trick him in order to go on the boat trip with them when he hands him half a script.
   Denham notices Ann's beauty after defending her from trying to steal an apple from a stand. It's right before he sees her outside of a women's club.
   Ann accepts Denham's offer for a leading lady reluctantly but quickly. She only agrees upon hearing that Jack Driscoll is writing the screenplay.
