KING KONG
January 30, 2018  | By David Bianculli  | 1 comment

TCM, 8:00 p.m. ET

 

In 1933, special effects pioneer Willis O’Brien mixed live-action footage and stop-motion monsters to create the king of the apes. King Kong’s proportions may have kept changing throughout the film, but there’s no denying how exciting it must have been, and somehow still is, to see Kong take his iconic place atop the Empire State Building. And Fay Wray is almost as much fun to watch, though for different reasons.

A dumb brute destroying everything it touches. That starts at 9. King Kong starts at 8.
