KING KONG (Theatrical Release USA 1976)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.2|5.0 Starsìììì

King Kong
—not as good as the Peter Jackson and Jack Black version of the same storyline—has a way to go to make a stronger story. The special effects are worthy despite scenes of the gorilla blow drying Dwan’s hair with his breath. Jeff Bridges is very well casted. Great work for Director John Guillermin.
