Synopsis

In the classic adventure that made her a star, Fay Wray plays the beautiful woman who conquers the savage heart of a giant ape. Traveling to an uncharted South Pacific island with an adventurer following tales of a God-Ape, Ann Darrow (Wray) is captured by the island's natives to serve as a human sacrifice to Kong. But when Kong, a giant ape, sees Darrow, it is overcome with love--and eventually captured by the adventurers. Taken to New York and put on display, Kong breaks free and pursues Darrow through New York in one of the most famous scenes ever filmed. The original King Kong, breaking loose in cinemas! This special event includes exclusive insights from Turner Classic Movies.

what Willis Obrien created with a steel skeleton. beaver fur and shooting 24 frames per second for every movement Kong makes is still a stunning achievement. None of the post 1933 Kong movies have come close. Even with all the technical advances that film makers have now.
