The Original King Kong

I had the chance to catch the original King Kong on TMC recently (I love how they show the "Overture" at the beginning - you won't see that on any other network.)

It's been years since I've seen it, and it's still a terrific yarn, once you get past the stop-motion effects - really quite effective in light of when it was made. But what doesn't hold up as well are the over-dramatics - Denham's stentorian speechifying, Fay Wray's one-note performance: "Aaaayyyiiiggghhh!!!".

What I'm looking forward to seeing in Peter Jackson's version is Naomi Watts - strong, humorous, and hot hot hot!
