King Kong. (The original, of course.)

C'mon, tell me you didn't choke up when Kong was dying atop the Empire State Building.
Yes, I was gutted. I really had a thing for Kong when I was a kid, we watched that movie at least once a year. The remakes had zero emotional resonance for me. If I see any of it now it I'm right back to being a kid tearing up and feeling helpless outrage.
Yeah, that was my response as a kid as well. Willis O'Brien really milked the pathos of Kong's final moments.
