This crewman, portayed by Jed Brophy, survives almost the entire expedition. Unfortunately he is the first one being killed off in the log scene, by slipping on the wet moss, down into the chasm below.

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

He is equiped with a Mauser Gewehr 98(Sniper Rifle).


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 along with 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 crew to search for Ann and survived the dangers until the Log Attack when King Kong grabbed a log they were walking across. He was the first person being killed, after Hayes, by falling off the log to his death in the chasm below. However a Venture Crewman Similar to him can be along with another Venture Crewman who looks like Venture Crewman 2 are seen pulling down Kong with other sailors including Venture Crewman 24.

  • During Kong's captured when the sailors are pulling Kong down, he can be seen along with Venture Crewman 2 pulling Kong down too. Its possible they either survived the fall or they were both played by the same actors: Jed Brophy and Steve Reinsfield.
