King Kong (1933)

A film crew discovers the "eighth wonder of the world," a giant prehistoric ape, and brings him back to New York, where he wreaks havoc.

Alfredo Garcia

The way this film makes a monster turn into a misunderstood monkey for the viewer with not even one single dialogue is just amazing. A true all time classic and a must-see for sure.

Surprisingly brutal for 30's cinema. Great film.

I find the notion that this big special effects blockbuster and crowd pleaser is being called elitist quite absurd. This is probably one of the most "accessible" film from this era for younger generations as it's ludicrously fast paced, a bit too fast for my taste, and essentially shares the tradition that people like Roland Emmerich are now taking part of. Though the latter statement might offend the most hardcore fan ;)
