The First King Kong Still Going Strong
With the recent DVD release of this film, and the latest version on the big screen being released two days from this writing, I hope more people take the opportunity to check this movie out, the original King Kong, if they’ve never seen it.
This movie must have been astounding to the people watching it over 70 years ago. I doubt they’d ever seen anything like this, action-wise, and monster-wise. It is still fascinating today, even with the great advancements in special effects.
Most action films from the classic years, from 1920 to the late 1960s had corny mostly unrealistic special effects but this film still holds up, extraordinarily so considering its age. The film also had a tremendous amount of action. Young people today are usually bored watching old black-and-white movies but they wouldn’t be bored with this one. Once the “girl,” Fay Wray gets captured by King Kong, the rest of the movie is one long action scene.
Kong was not the only beast in the movie, either, which surprised me the first time I ever saw this. Protecting Wray, Kong battles a dinosaur, a giant snake, a giant bird and then human beings firing bullets and bombs at him.
Wray also was fun to watch, but I”m a male so a pretty woman like her – shockingly exposing her breasts in one scene, too – makes it easier to enjoy the film. Her screaming, however, can get on your nerves. She must have been hoarse for a month after filming this movie.
Robert Armstrong, as the film director, and Bruce Cabot, as the ship crewman and Wray”s rescuer, also are interesting to watch and hear. As I said, once the action kicks in, the his a very entertaining movie and impossible to put down.
Kong Is Classic
King Kong (1933)
I had been anticipating viewing this for a long time. Back in ’05 when Peter Jackson’s remake came out I went to the theatre to see it and really enjoyed it. The story was awesome, the setting was really amazing, and the CGI “Kong” was incredible. It wasn’t until a few years later when I had wanted to see the original King Kong. I looked all over for it and once I finally had a copy of it (the original black and white, not the colorized version) I was ready for it…
And personally, I think it blew the 2005 remake out of the water, no comparison. Of course, the original lacked a lot of the remake’s special effects and vivid colors and whatnot, but that was to be much expected.
But I really loved it. It was amazing to see how they pulled that off back in the 30s. The acting was fantastic, the camera direction was superb, and I was mesmerized by the scenery.
Everyone should at least see this classic once in their lifetime. I know I plan on watching it again very soon…
