King Kong is a classic 1933 Horror/Adventure movie about a film crew visiting Skull Island and discovering the titular giant gorilla, who falls for the female lead Ann Darrow (Fay Wray). Kong is abducted and brought to New York City as "The Eighth Wonder of the World." He escapes and goes on a rampage, leading to the famous climax atop the Empire State Building.

It was inducted into the National Film Registry in 1991. It is considered one of the all-time great movies and spawned sequels, Spin-offs, remakes and parodies.
