About King Kong, the original film
From Wikipedia, "King Kong is a 1933 American fantasy monster/adventure film directed and produced by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack. The screenplay by James Ashmore Creelman and Ruth Rose was 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 March 2, 1933 to rave reviews."
I hate to admit this, but I wasn't a big fan of the original. *Runs for cover* I think the visual graphics of the film were cool, but beyond that...bleh. Sorry, I couldn't get into the the monster-ape wants the blond bombshell angle. And sadly, because I was never a fan of the original, I neglected to see the Hollywood repeat released in 2005. So, was the remake as good as the original? Anyone?
Even though it may not have been my favorite, there is no doubt this monster was a classic one.
L is for the Loch Ness Monster
Do you think Nessie exists? It's possible, right? I saw the documentary on that body of water they like to call a lake. Here's a snippet of the National Geographic show. It sounds convincing, huh? Do you think Nessie is a classical monster?
Do you have any monsters you think would have been better to feature?
