A wonderfully enjoyable production, reflecting the historic importance of the original production.
24 June 2017 | by wookieecantinaSee all my reviews

The impact of the original King Kong struck a chord in Hollywood's archival history which has never ceased to vibrate and impact the industry in an almost daily manner. Frank Dietz and Trish Geiger have compiled an astonishing collection of historical facts and interviews which clearly reinforce the celluloid legacy from 1933. If you're a movie fan or working within the entertainment industry, I cannot recommend strongly enough the importance of Dietz's compilation and all that it brings to every generation hence, from opening night to every day we wake and set about our daily tasks. Take an hour out of your busy schedule and enjoy this documentary. You'll walk away with an entirely new and energized appreciation of the production, the characters and those who created this immortal and defining film, the laurels of which have never crowned another.
