Lieutenant Hank Marlow is a United States Air Force officer who fought in the second World War in 1941.
In 1941, young Hank Marlow was drafted into the U.S. Air Force during World War II. He was assigned to the Pacific Coast to fight the armies of Japan where during a recon mission he entered in a aerial dogfight with Japanese pilot, Ikari Gunpei. Both crashed landed on the mysterious Skull Island and young Marlow was chased by Gunpei into the island’s jungle before stopping at a cliff. With no way out, Marlow fought Gunpei but he was easily overpowered and Gunpei began chocking and staring right at Marlow in the eye. Just then giant furry hands came up to the cliff and Gunpei immediately let go of Marlow as both stared with fear of a giant 70 ft ape looking down at them. The film camera moves into the giant ape right eye who sees Marlow in his pupil then Marlow looks straight at the audience and you look into Marlow’s right eye and his pupil turns into a firey ring.
