The original 1933 version of “King Kong” stars Fay Wray, Robert Armstrong, Bruce Cabot, and was directed b Merian C. Cooper, with the incredible and jaw-dropping special effects of Willis H. O’Brian used to create King Kong, perhaps the great movie monster in Hollywood history. Kong lives on a hidden island, where he is discovered by Hollywood movie director looking to film his next big adventure hit. But the movie-makers get more than they bargained for when they trap Kong, using the director’s beautiful blonde star (Fay Wray), and then try to transport him back to New York City. The ending of “King Kong” is one of the most famous in movie history. “King Kong” was later remade by Academy Award-winner Peter Jackson, director of the “Lord Of The Rings” movies.
