King Kong

And lo, the beast looked upon the face of beauty, and beauty stayed his hand. And from that day forward, he was as one dead.

King Kong is a fictional monster resembling a gorilla that has appeared in several films since 1933.

Quotes about KongEdit

  • Intellectuals have attempted to read certain symbolisms into King Kong. Kong represents a Depression-stricken people lashing out against society; Kong is a Christ figure crucified on a stage before an audience of spectators; Kong symbolizes the black man and his conflict against his white oppressors; Kong on the Empire State Building depicts the most spectacular phallic symbol ever captured by film; and so on. Cooper has disavowed these "insights" into his film; he was not the kind of person to consider injecting messages into his productions. … Whatever messages might lurk beneath the film's surface were entirely coincidental on Cooper's part or, at best, subliminal.
    • Donald F. Glut, in Classic Movie Monsters (1978), p. 314; also quoted in King Kong Cometh! (2005) by Paul A. Woods, p. 67
