For anyone who grew up in the U.S. during the 70's it was almost impossible to miss. Back in the days of only 3 channels, SoM and The Ten Commandments where always played once a year (and the other two channels knew better than to schedule anything worth while against them). Both where almost considered an "Event" to some. As far as I know one of the Big 3 still does show them each year, there are just way more options now.
When I was growing up King Kong (the original) was played once a year at thanksgiving and was our traditional "Event". Now that's a movie everyone should see!! Incredibly atmospheric.

When I was growing up, the re-make came out (mid 70's). I remember looking forward to getting a chance to visit the twin towers when I got older. Never imagined that I wouldn't get the chance.

Re: Kestra and RoMax's Valentine Extravaganza!

I'm joking here in case I have to actually spell it out.

The remake was fun but the original King Kong was incredible.

I'm not sure if I've seen it in its entirety, but from what I've seen of the three, I would go: Original, J.Black Remake, 70's remake.

I saw the stage version on Broadway and the movie when it first came out, and then never again until I subscribed to Netflix. I enjoy it now as much as I remembered from my teens.

Ah, the original King Kong. One of my top five movies of all time.

Not happy to not be (friendly)crushing on anyone this year. Crushing makes life sweeter. Well, I've had a ten year long crush here, but I don't think that's what this thread is about. I guess I really am "middle-aged"...

In my country, the film version was part of the national broadcast schedule in the event of a nuclear war. True story:

I wonder if I should send anonymous pink roses out. No one will know if they are from me or someone else!

I was planning to send out Violet Carsons myself. They know who they are...

This whole thing was thought up so you could do that without another living soul knowing, right?
