King Kong

TCM | 6:15 pm

Forget Godzilla. The granddaddy of all movie monsters is the unforgettable Kong. Fay Wray, Bruce Cabot and Robert Armstrong are the human stars of the 1933 classic about a giant ape brought down by human greed and his own soft spot for a certain blond beauty. But the real star is the great beast himself, who remains impressive even by today's special-effects standards.
