KING KONG 1933 version

King Kong (1933)
REEL Learning
USA 1933, 100 min, Dir: Merian C. Cooper, Ernest B. Schoedsack

Wednesday November 30 at 7:00PM

A film crew goes to a tropical island for an exotic location shoot and discovers a colossal giant gorilla who takes a shine to their female blonde star. He is then captured and brought back to New York City for public exhibition.

Join composers Allan Gilliland (PhD, Edinburgh) and John McMillan (Cert. Film Scoring, UCLA) from MacEwan University, as they discuss the art of film scoring and the role film music plays in enhancing the cinematic experience. They will introduce the first motion picture to have a completely original score—the original King Kong—and Max Steiner's 1933 score that changed film music forever.

$2 off at the box office if you let them know you're there with film meetup

    As there is a lecture prior to the movie I plan to be seated by 6:40pm. Look for bearded guy in yellow and black coat sitting left centre about 10 rows from back.

    Not only did this film have an original film score but I think it won the first Oscar for special effects.

      Found out special effects were not an Oscar category till 1938 but the effects still are great and ground breaking for the time.
