“The most exciting original motion picture event of all time.”
The never subtle Dino De Laurentiis released his version of King Kong in December of 1976. I saw it in a movie theater at the age of 10 and enjoyed it. I also developed a crush on Jessica Lange. I don’t believe I’ve seen the film since. I have the feeling it doesn’t stand up to adult scrutiny. You can enjoy this TV commercial for the film, also from December ’76.
After that, a spot for CBS detective series Kojak, starring Telly Savalas. This one aired on the same day in ’76.
