The original and still the best of the great ape series. Robert Armstrong stars as movie producer Carl Denham who travels to a mysterious, uncharted island in search of material for his next film. Also aboard are actress Ann Darrow (Fay Wray) and adventurer Jack Driscoll (Bruce Cabot). Once the crew reaches Skull Island they discover it is home to prehistoric beasts including Kong, a giant ape worshipped by the local inhabitants. The mighty Kong shows his sensitive side by falling for Ann, and, after his capture by the crew and transportation to New York, rampages across the city in search of his new love. A film ahead of its time, King Kong defied the technological limitations of the 1930s with its highly imaginative, technically brilliant and revolutionary stop-motion animation. With equal parts adventure, horror and old-fashioned romance, King Kong is a milestone of movie-making that has endured for more than seven decades, captivated audiences and started a worldwide love affair with the giant ape.
