KING KONG remains the Eighth Wonder of the World, a marvelous, mysterious blend of awesome prehistoric monsters and newfangled technology (including airplanes, subway trains and the Empire State Building). Fay Wray lights up the screen as the beauty who drives the beast to distraction, with support from Robert Armstrong, Bruce Cabot and the astounding visual effects work of Willis O’Brien.
