Lieutenant Susan Watson is a protagonist in the 1967 film, King Kong Escapes.
Susan is a nurse aboard a United Nations vessel traveling in the Indian and Pacific Oceans near Indonesia. She walks in on a conversation between her superior Commander Carl Nelson and her co-worker Lieutenant Jiro Nomura, on the nearby Mondo Island, and its rumored inhabitant King Kong. The three then decide to take a short visit to the island. When they near it, Susan and the others travel to it by hovercraft. A native man tries to ward them off, but Nomura and Nelson leave her with their vessel, and go to investigate. Shortly thereafter, Watson is attacked by Gorosaurus, her screams then awaken the sleeping Kong.
Kong kills Gorosaurus, and becomes attached to Susan, picking her up as he does all of his "crushes". Kong eventually lets Susan down on her request, and she returns to the ship with Nelson and Nomura, little did they know that Kong followed en suite. 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, are then summoned to the Arctic by Doctor Hu. Hu tries to get Watson to use her influence over Kong for his own purpose, mining nuclear materials.
After Watson refuses, she and Nomura then are held captive, and are eventually subjected to torture. Shortly thereafter, King Kong Escapes from his prison below Hu's base, causing it to collapse. Kong eventually travels to Tokyo, and Nelson, Nomura, and Susan is then taken by Mechani-Kong to the top of Tokyo Tower, where Doctor Hu (who was controlling Mechani-Kong) threatens to drop her. Kong rescues her, and she is placed on an observation deck while Jiro Nomura climbed the tower to get her down. After Mechani-Kong's defeat, Susan sent Kong after Hu, whose boat he then destroys, subsequently killing him. Susan calls for Kong to return, but he swims away toward his home.
