Susan Watson is a fictional nurse and military officer featured in the 1967 sci-fi creature feature King Kong Escapes. She was played by actress Linda Miller.


Susan Watson was a member of a United Nations military unit where she served as a nurse on the submarine vessel The Explorer. She worked under Commander Carl Nelson and held the rank of Lieutenant.

After the Explorer suffered some damage to its rudder from an undersea rockslide, the ship diverted its course towards Mondo Island. Lieutenant Watson cleaned up a head injury suffered by Lieutenant Commander Jiro Nomura. Nelson, Nomura and Watson explored the island where they found an elderly islander who spoke in his native tongue about "Kong". Kong was a sixty-foot gorilla who was regarded as a king on this island. Watson was the first to catch sight of Kong, who took an interest in her and picked her up in his giant hand. When a dinosaur creature known as Gorosaurus attacked, Kong placed Susan on a tree branch so he could deal with the menace.

Susan managed to get down and regroup with Nelson and Nomura as they retreated back to the Explorer. Kong chased after them in an effort to reclaim his new toy. Susan managed to convince Kong to leave them be, and the Explorer left the island.

Notes & Trivia

  • Actress Linda Miller was the second female lead in the film, and received third billing in the credits after Mie Hama who played a villainess called Madame X.
  • In the scenes where Kong is picking Susan up off the ground and placing her into a tree, it is very clear that a toy prop was used in place of the actress.
  • During some of the action scenes, Linda Miller's skirt hiked up a bit revealing her garter belts.
  • Playing the role of Susan Watson is Linda Miller's first work in film. She was working as a model and living in Japan at the time that casting began on the film. [2]
  • Susan Watson fills the trope of "Monster love interest", in much the same way that Fay Wray did as Ann Darrow in the original King Kong in 1933.

Susan was a nurse aboard a United Nations vessel traveling in the Indian and Pacific Oceans near Indonesia. She walked in on a conversation between her superior Commander Carl Nelson and her co-worker Lieutenant Jiro Nomura, on the nearby Mondo Island about its rumored inhabitant King Kong. The three then decided to take a short visit to the island. When they neared it, Susan and the others traveled to it by hovercraft. A native man tried to ward them off, but Nomura and Nelson left Susan with their vessel, and went to investigate. Shortly thereafter, Watson was attacked by Gorosaurus, her screams then awakened the sleeping Kong. Kong defeated Gorosaurus, and became attached to Susan, picking her up and holding her. Kong eventually let Susan down on her request, and she returned to the ship with Nelson and Nomura. Little did they know that Kong had followed them. The ape began to shake the boat until he was told to stop and return to the island by Watson. Watson and the ship's crew were then summoned to the Arctic by Dr. Who. Who tried to get Watson to use her influence over Kong for his own purpose, mining nuclear materials. After Watson refused, she and Nomura were held captive at Who's base, where they were subjected to torture. Shortly thereafter, King Kong escaped from his prison below Who's base, causing it to collapse. Kong eventually traveled to Tokyo, with Nelson, Nomura, and Susan, only for Susan to be kidnapped and taken to the top of the Tokyo Tower by Mechani-Kong, a robotic duplicate of Kong controlled by Dr. Who. Kong climbed the tower and rescued her, placing her on an observation deck while Jiro Nomura climbed the tower to get her down. After Kong destroyed Mechani-Kong by knocking it off the tower, Susan sent Kong to attack Dr. Who's current base of operations, a boat docked in Tokyo Bay.

And here I am, sat down on a concrete slab and decided to read biology out of nothing to do. But it was simply impossible to read what was written there, and after looking at a few pictures, I again plunged into thought.
