King Kong (Blu-ray)

The original 1933 classic in glorious black and white, newly restored, and digitally remastered. A moviemaking expedition to a fantastic island is filled with dinosaurs and other prehistoric creatures. A gaint simian becomes lovestruck with the film's blonde starlet. King Kong is captured and is brought to Manhattan, where he goes on a rampage, culminating in the fateful finale atop the Empire State Building where he cradles his beloved and swats at machine-gunning airplanes.
Special features: Commentary by visual effects veterans Ray Harryhausen and Ken Ralston ; interview excerpts with Merian C. Cooper and Fay Wray ; I'm King Kong: The exploits of Merian C. Cooper ; RKO Production 601: The making of King Kong ; test footage ; The lost spider pit sequence ; trailer.

I cannot believe the difference in quality. It is like watching the movie for the first time. I was amazed. ~Mike
