Only on Mushroom escape:
From this Saturday at 2am Eastern, that’s 7pm Saturday in NZ, 5pm in Sydney and 7am in the UK, and repeated every four hours throughout the day, it’s the described movie King Kong from 1933.
King Kong is a 1933 American pre-Code monster adventure romance film directed and produced by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack.
The screenplay by James Ashmore Creelman and Ruth Rose was developed from an idea conceived by Cooper and Edgar Wallace.
It stars Fay Wray, Bruce Cabot and Robert Armstrong, and opened in New York City on 2 March, 1933, to rave reviews.
It has been ranked by Rotten Tomatoes as the fourth greatest horror film of all time and the forty-sixth greatest film of all time.
The film portrays the story of a huge, gorilla-like creature dubbed Kong who perishes in an attempt to possess a beautiful young woman (Wray).
King Kong contains stop-motion animation by Willis O'Brien and a music score by Max Steiner.
In 1991, it was deemed "culturally, historically and aesthetically significant" by the Library of Congress and selected for preservation in the National Film Registry.
A sequel quickly followed with Son of Kong (also released in 1933), with several more films made in the following decades, including two remakes which were made in 1976 and 2005 respectively.
