In 1933, directors Merian C. Cooper and Ernest Schoedsack revolutionized blockbuster filmmaking when they married state-of-the-art animation, set and creature designs to create a tale about a giant gorilla that would become an film icon for decades to come. King Kong would also inspire generations of filmmakers who would go on to take leaps forward in visual effects and would eventually create even more lucrative creatures and even return to remake the original not once but twice. But does the original deserve the alpha status heaped upon it or does it take a long dive off an equally famous building? MovieDude Eric, Kent & Chris find out.
