Film-maker Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong) plans a trip to the South Seas in search of a subject for a film. What he is missing is a female star for his adventure, with famous actresses turning him down left, right and centre. At a fruit stand he rescues a penniless woman from the clutches of the owner after he catches her reaching for an apple. She turns out to be a beautiful young woman named Ann Darrow (Fay Wray) and he quickly talks her into joining his expedition. They continue into a uncharterd land where they find hostile natives and amazing creatures. One of these creatures is King Kong. The last of his kind and a truly amazing beast.
I loved King Kong and I didn’t even mind that it is in black and white. The amazing scope and range of the movie makes it hard to believe that so much feeling can be condensed into a film especially from the dawn of the movie industry. Truly captivating and you see more then a living raging beast in King Kong because you can feel his emotions in this beuty and the beast classic. Truly worth being called a classic in every sense and worth watching even if it is your first black and white.
