It’s the Ape-th of February, and that means it’s the first of our monthly bonus forays into the world of Ape cinema outside of Planet of the Apes! And what better place to start than with the most famous ape of them all? That’s right, we’re kicking it off with 1933’s King Kong, and here to join us is Geoff’s sister and classic cinema fan Erin Clarke! The three of them have a grand ol’ time examining this old classic’s still-amazing special effects, grizzled old misogynistic seamen, the exhausting day-to-day life of the ol’ Kongster, the magic of Carl Denham and his real-life inspiration director Merian C. Cooper, how this movie compares to Peter Jackson’s cinematic monster, how Jack Driscoll and Anne Darrow are the WORST, and just DINOSAUR after DINOSAUR after DINOSAUR. One listen to this podcast and you’ll feel like you could scale the Empire State Building yourself!
