What Big Apple landmark did King Kong climb in the famous 1933 film?




-The Statue of Liberty
-The Empire State Building
-The Chrysler Building
-The World Trade Center




The iconic final battle with King Kong is so memorable that the Empire State Building turned down its lights to salute actress Fay Wray after her death in 2004. Kong’s size is actually a few feet larger in the New York scenes than earlier in the movie. This was done to keep him in proportion to the giant buildings of the city. Like many classic movies, it’s been remade multiple times, with “Kong: Skull Island” debuting in 2017. Long live the King! Source: Mental Floss
