King Kong is still part of the pantheon of monsters of the fantastic cinema. The movie hasn’t lost any of its strength and its force of attraction. The adventure story about an impossible love is the result of the artistic collaboration between the filmmakers and adventurers Ernest B. Schoedsack and Merian C. Cooper. And don’t forget Willis O'Brien, a pioneer in the field of special effects. He devised new techniques to bring Kong to life by using stop-motion animation, retro projection and painted glass plates.
