The Eighth Wonder
The Eighth Wonder of the World
It's the Granddaddy of all giant monster movies. King Kong, the eighth wonder of the world. If it wasn't for this movie
there would be no Godzilla. I'll explain, before this there this there was the LOST WORLD, but the dinosaurs were the right
size for dinosaurs. This was the first movie to have a strangely large animal.
The story is a film crew goes to find this legendary creature. He hears the story from a drunken sailor and pays good
money for the chart, he hires a babe. Who gets captured by the Natives and scarificed to Kong.
But Kong doesn't eat her, he falls for her and takes her into the forest and defends her from the other monsters that
live there. While the men go after her.
We all know the story, it's not perfect. It does have a flaw or two. But if you've seen the latest remake by PETER JACKSON,
you should see the one, the only, the one that started it all way, way back in 1933. KING KONG!
