King Kong (1933, fantasy and action)
When a Hollywood hotshot, Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong) takes his favorite starlet, Ann Darrow (Fay Wray), to a strange, isolated prehistoric island in search of the legendary King Kong (rendered lifelike by stop-motion animation), the astronomical ape falls head over heels in love with Ann. Carl captures the super-sized simian and takes him back to New York City to display as a colossal curiosity - but sad-eyed Kong goes wild and runs amuck in Manhattan, swinging off the Empire State Building and batting at annoying airplanes. There have been a few sequels over the years, including a notoriously dreadful remake starring Jeff Bridges, Jessica Lange and Charles Grodin in 1976.
