King Kong: Cutting Edge Technology 80 Years Ago

August 5, 2011

This rebroadcast of a very enjoyable interview about the production of the original King Kong caught my attention. Music, Kong himself, and Fay Wray’s high-pitched screams are all covered. Compared to seeing today’s fantastic effects, it was fun to remember watching this much simpler film years ago and being suitably impressed (and scared).  A visit to Universal Studios in the 70’s also came to mind– and the sheepishness I felt when I encountered the two foot long mechanical shark that starred as Jaws and terrified millions, including yours truly!
