King Kong is a 1933 American monster adventure film directed and produced by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack, and stars Fay Wray, Bruce Cabot and Robert Armstrong. The film tells the story of a film crew that visits a tropical island for an exotic location shoot and discovers a colossal ape who takes a shine to their female blonde star (Wray). He is then captured and brought back to New York City for public exhibition.

King Kong is especially noted for its stop-motion animation by Willis O. Brien and a groundbreaking musical score by Max Steiner. It is widely regarded as one of the greatest horror films of all time.
