The classic, King Kong, made its New York premiere on this day–in 1933. (It was released nationwide on April 7th).
It’s also Willis O’Brien’s birthday (who created the marvelous stop-motion effects for the film). He was born in 1886.

Sinbad & the Eye of the Tiger was released on this day (Aug. 12) in 1977.
It was the third–and final–Sinbad film featuring the beautiful stop-motion work of master monster maker, Ray Harryhausen. As always, it was his creatures that stole the film.
