Course Detail: OSH-KINGKONG - King Kong: America's Greatest Movie Monster

Released in theatres in 1933, King Kong created the American monster movie. Ninety years later, Kong still elicits admiration for its technical innovations, debate about its meaning, and even a few screams, and is ranked by The American Film Institute as one of the 50 greatest movies ever made. In this course, we will view the film, examine the stories and people behind its creation, and consider the movie's cultural and historical context and continuing legacy.
