King Kong, 1933

That’s the original King Kong taking on a T-Rex who’s been hassling his girl, Ann Darrow (Fay Wray) in the classic 1933 film, King Kong. I’ve begun my own film festival here of Kong and his remakes because the narrator of the novel I’m working on, The Best Lucifer Ever, has a passion for the story. Both Lucifer and Kong take a big fall and have controversial relationships with women. As a Creature Feature aficianado in my youth, I must’ve seen this picture dozens of times, but it still works for me.

  1. I think I might have mentioned this to you in email, but we saw the original right before we saw the Peter Jackson remake, and that was a very worthwhile bookend viewing experience. I’d highly recommend it.
