The big guy once known as ‘The 8th Wonder of the World’ is celebrating his 80th birthday. A landmark accomplishment in cinema and fantasy, King Kong still holds the power to astonish and inspire, so in honor of its 80 years, here’s a look at the movie’s groundbreaking production and significant legacy.
Carl Denham, who brought Kong from Skull Island to New York, was an adventurous, globe-hopping filmmaker and the same was true of Merian C. Cooper, the mastermind behind the movie King Kong. Born in 1893, Cooper had been an aviator and hero in the First World War. He began his movie career in the mid-1920s at Paramount Pictures where he teamed up with Ernest B. Schoedsack, a pioneering motion picture photographer and news cameraman who would become his filmmaking partner. Their first successes were a pair of ambitious anthropological documentaries inspired by the

This week, I stopped by New York’s famed Lincoln Center to meet with Richard Pena, who has run its New York Film Festival for the past 25 years and will be stepping down from his post after the fest’s 50 edition, which will run from Friday, Sept. 28, through Sunday, Oct. 14.
Pena, 59, grew up in New York and first attended the Nyff at age 12. His interest in cinema had already been piqued by screenings of classic movies on television and books about film. But he recalls his trip to the fest to see Erich von Stroheim‘s The Wedding March (1928) as “a transformative experience” that immensely encouraged his pursuit of film study and sparked a lifelong love of the fest itself.
Pena eventually went to Harvard, but it was in the countries of Latin America, throughout which he traveled between his junior and senior years,

Directed by Billy Wilder
Written by Charles Brackett and Billy Wilder
1950 – USA
You must remember this. For me the love affair with movies began with Humphrey Bogart and Lauren Bacall and a world of smoke, cynicism and smouldering looks. I discovered a copy of Joe Hyams’ biography, Bogart and Bacall, while I was working at my local library around 1980. Obsessing over Hollywood’s most famous May-December romance soon led me to the black and white movies of the 40s, and many late nights watching Hawks, Huston, Curtiz and Billy Wilder.
I don’t know exactly when I first saw Wilder’s Sunset Blvd., but it was about 30 years ago and I have revisited it regularly. The film was significant because for the first time I felt a
The first voice we heard had an American accent, of the Deep South persuasion (badly affected, in the great tradition of radio drama), recanting about the importance of marriage. Listeners were promised a trip out of the safety of Ambridge – but across the Atlantic? Perhaps not though – with the clunky insertion of a date, listeners old and new know they are hearing something that happened last year: "The Wedding March" and pealing bells quieten, and with the introduction of some unfamiliar voices, we are with Alice Carter, née Aldridge, and her Southampton University friends watching the DVD of her Las Vegas wedding to Christopher Carter – a source of great controversy in Ambridge at the time.

Fay Wray: A Life follows the life and travels of Wray and her friendship with McKay, whom she met in the early 1990s. Wray appeared in McKay's 2003 film, Broadway: The Golden Age.
The new docu features Wray sharing stories of early Hollywood, including her purported affairs with Howard Hughes and Clifford Odets and meeting with Peter Jackson and Naomi Watts before filming the 2005 remake of King Kong.
Postproduction on Fay Wray is scheduled for March at Jackson's New Zealand studio, with a summer/fall 2008 release planned.
The Film Forum also will show Erich von Stroheim's 1928 silent film The Wedding March, starring Wray.
McKay, film historian Foster Hirsch, the forum's Bruce Goldstein and Wray's daughter Susan Riskin are scheduled to appear.
Alas, Wray's follow-up films were less than memorable, and she left the screen in 1942 to marry writer Robert Riskin (It Happened One Night). She made a return in the 50s in small roles, usually playing a teen ingenue's mother (as she did in Tammy and the Bachelor), but gave up moviemaking by the end of the decade and appeared sporadically on television through the 60s. Her last appearance was in the 1980 TV movie Gideon's Trumpet opposite Henry Fonda. In 1988 she published her autobiography, On the Other Hand, and was the guest of honor at the 1991 ceremony marking the 60th birthday of the Empire State Building; she wrote, "Each time I arrive in New York and see the skyline and the exquisite beauty of the Empire State Building, my heart beats a little faster. I like that feeling. I really like it!" Wray is survived by three children, including daughter Victoria Riskin. --Prepared by IMDb staff
