King Kong (1933)

The original monster movie, featuring a stunning mix of stop-motion animation and live-action that wowed 1930s cinema goers and has inspired filmmakers ever since. A giant prehistoric ape is discovered on a tropical island by a film crew. As the primate develops an infatuation with the production's leading lady (Fay Wray), producer Carl Denjam (Robert Armstrong) plots to capture him and bring him to New York as "Kong! The Eighth Wonder of the World!"

Kong mystifies as well as it horrifies, and may open up a new medium for scaring babies via the screen.

The throbbing heart of the film lies in the creation of the semi-human simian himself, an immortal tribute to the Hollywood dream factory...

Even allowing for its slow start, wooden acting and wall-to-wall screaming, there is something ageless and primeval about King Kong that still somehow works.
