#151: King Kong (1933) with Mark Vaz, James D’Arc & Joe DeVito

We have a KING-sized episode for you in honor of the 90th anniversary of the movie that kickstarted our love for on-screen spectacle: 1933’s King Kong. We’re joined by a trio of Merian C. Cooper experts to discuss the many firsts this movie claimed, Cooper’s love of the unknown, and Fay Wray’s ability to make you love her alongside a giant ape.
Kristen’s written a new book for TCM and Running Press called But Have You Read the Book? all about film adaptations! You can pre-order it now before its March 7th release date.
Reviews matter and you can help us out by giving us 5 stars on Apple Podcasts! Also, tell your friends to like and subscribe to our Patreon, InstagramTwitter, and TikTok channels!
