Summary
The original 1933 classic in glorious black and white, newly restored, and digitally remastered. A moviemaking expedition to a fantastic island is filled with dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures. A gaint simian becomes lovestruck with the film's blonde starlet. King Kong is captured and is brought to Manhattan, where he goes on a rampage, culminating in the fateful finale atop the Empire State Building where he cradles his beloved and swats at machine-gunning airplanes
