King Kong is a landmark black-and-white 1933 Hollywood horror-adventure film about a gigantic prehistoric gorilla named "Kong".

The film was directed by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack and starred Fay Wray. It is notable for Willis O'Brien's ground-breaking stop-motion animation work, Max Steiner's musical score, and actress Fay Wray's performance as the ape's improbable love interest. King Kong premiered in New York City on March 2, 1933.
