Classic 1933 Hollywood horror/adventure film about a gigantic prehistoric gorilla who wreaks havoc in New York City. Notable for Willis OBrien's stop-motion animation, Max Steiner's musical score, and actress Fay Wray's performance as the ape's improbable love interest. In the finale, which has become an enduring pop icon, Kong is gunned-down from atop the Empire State Building by a swarm of Army biplanes.
