U.S., 1933
Directed and produced by Merian C. Cooper & Ernest B. Schoedsack
Starring Fay Wray, Robert Armstrong
Approx. 100 min. DCP.

“Bring-‘em-back-alive” filmmaker Robert Armstrong, with scream queen (and Film Forum member) Fay Wray in tow, sets out in search of the Ultimate Attraction: The Greatest Ape of Them All – animated by the great Willis O’Brien – immortalized the just-constructed Empire State Building en route to his own enshrinement in world folklore. Released the week of FDR’s bank holiday, the Mighty Kong still smashed box office records.


“The father of JURASSIC PARK, the ALIEN movies and countless other stories in which heroes are terrified by skillful special effects.”
– Roger Ebert

“This astonishing, delightful, and exciting movie is one of the great wonders of the silver screen, once seen, never forgotten… Remains as thrilling and delightful as it ever was.”
– Leonard Maltin, Family Film Guide
