King Kong Week: King Kong (1933)
Denham’s bosses want a female to appear in his latest motion picture to ramp up the box office grosses, and Denham must kowtow to their wishes. But the “reckless” Denham goes out and finds a female star on his own, in his own way. He discovers the young woman, Ann, attempting to steal an apple from a fruit stand, on the verge of starvation.
|...the search for new faces and new things begins...|
|Beyond the reefs...|
|...and behind the wall...|
|The Skull Island Safari #1|
|The Skull Island Safari #2|
|The Skull Island Safari #3|
|The Skull Island Safari #4|
|While we watch a safari film, Denham is also making a safari film.|
|A girl is needed front both films. Hence the presence of lovely Fay Wray.|
And even today, the film’s spirit of adventure -- if not divine -- is at least as “royal” as its title indicates.
