King Kong (1933)
Director: Merian C.Cooper, Ernest B.Shoedsack
Main Stars: Fay Wray, Robert Armstrong, Bruce Cabot
Storyline: A film crew go to a tropical island for an exotic location shoot and the come across a gigantic ape that kidnaps the blonde female movie star.
Review (Spoils): Director Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong ) needs to finish his film and the perfect location for this would be Skull Island. They travel with the actors, actresses and crew to the island with no idea what to expect. What the find out is dinosaurs and a huge ape exist on the island. The gorilla falls in love with the main actress of the film Ann (Fay Wray) and captures her. They rescue her and capture the beast and bring him back to America. In America they try to display the ape as King Kong as a freak of nature. The beast escapes and takes Ann again and climbs the Empire State building where it falls to its fate.
Classic storyline as we all know. The special effects of this film are amazing for its time and I personal think this is still the best version of the film.
Rating: This is a classic film and still one of the best of film in general even outside the horror genre. If you have not seen this one and have only seen the Peter Jackson version do yourself a favour and check it out! The plane scene alone is well worth it.
