In the second episode, we witness the 1933 special effects classic King Kong. Premiering on March 2nd, 1933, King Kong practically created the giant monster genre, and broke all-time attendance records with its two-theater, four-day run in New York City before going into wide release later that month. This episode features tons of great technical behind-the-scenes info thanks to King Kong historian and filmmaker Tim Smyth.
