Chronological and political information


Crew of the Venture


This individual was part of the crew of the SS Venture on the expedition to Skull Island.


The sailor struggles in the swamp, weighed down by his equipment.

The man was hired by Carl Denham to an expedition to Singapore (never telling him and the other crew that he was actually going to Skull Island). He and the rest of the crew helped try to remove things to keep the ship from sinking before Ann Darrow's kidnapping. He later was among the group of the sailors to search for Ann and survived the dangers of the island until the crew crossed the swamp.

The sailor sinks to the bottom of the swamp.

When a Piranhadon attacked the rafts, the crewman's equipment dragged him to the bottom of the swamp. The crewman removed his equipment and began to swim to the surface, unaware that the Piranhadon was approaching again. Jack Driscoll, who had also been dragged to the depths of the swamp by his equipment, tried to warn him but the sailor couldn't hear or see him, and the Piranhadon grabbed him, devouring him before returning to attack Jack.

The sailor is grabbed by the Piranhadon.
