Discussion following with makeup effects artist Rick Baker, director of photography Richard H. Kline, Martha and Raffaella De Laurentiis, “King Kong: The History of a Movie Icon” author Ray Morton and manager Richard Kraft, moderated by Don Mancini.
Oil executive Charles Grodin and paleontologist Jeff Bridges set sail for a previously unexplored island, where they discover a gigantic ape; Jessica Lange (in her feature debut) is the beauty who charms the beast. Produced by Dino De Laurentiis, this hit remake takes a lighter tone than the original, and Rick Baker and Carlo Rambaldi’s work bringing Kong to life earned the film a visual effects Oscar.
