Matthew Horvath's rating of the film King Kong

The Mother of all Monster Movies bar none!!! Willis O' Brien ... Max Steiner ... Fay Wray ... these are three of my favorite things!!! I still remember seeing this movie as a 2-year-old on Channel 9's "Million-Dollar Movie" around the Holidays in the late '70's. Dinosaurs, monster-gorillas, and scantily-clad blondes became the chief "milk-and-cookie break" topics for like the next 7 years after!!!
