KING KONG (1933) – AFI Movie Club

The Eighth Wonder of the World and a groundbreaking work with impact that still reverberates across the art form today, KING KONG (1933) has an appropriately massive footprint across the American Film Institute’s lists of cinema milestones. First appearing on AFI’s original list of the greatest films of all time – and then again on the 10th anniversary edition – creature creator Willis O’Brien’s iconic ape is also immortalized among the movies’ most heart-pounding thrills, greatest love stories and most memorable film scores. Ranking #4 among the greatest fantasy films of all time, the film’s tragic final line is also one of the art form’s greatest quotes – “Oh, no, it wasn’t the airplanes. It was Beauty killed the Beast.”
