KING KONG (1976)
1976, Paramount, 134 min, Dir: John Guillermin

Oil executive Charles Grodin and paleontologist Jeff Bridges set sail for a previously unexplored island, where they discover a gigantic ape; Jessica Lange (in her feature debut) is the beauty who charms the beast. Produced by Dino De Laurentiis, this hit remake takes a lighter tone than the original, and Rick Baker and Carlo Rambaldi’s work bringing Kong to life earned the film a visual effects Oscar. “The moviemaking team has come up with a pop classic that can stand in our affections right next to the original version.” - Pauline Kael, The New Yorker.
