“TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM) are teaming up to celebrate the 75th of Hollywood’s tallest, darkest leading man: KING KONG.

In addition to the April 11 simulcast of Jackson’s acclaimed blockbuster, TNT will present encores of the film Saturday, April 12, and Sunday, April 13, at 8 p.m. (ET/PT). TCM will follow its April 7 presentation of the original 1933 version of KING KONG with four other movie classics celebrating their 75th anniversary: Dinner at Eight at 10 p.m., Little Women at midnight, 42nd Street at 2 a.m. and Queen Christina at 3:45 a.m. “
Now, I’ve said before that movies aren’t always my thing, but I love the original King Kong film. The graphics are so bad it’s hysterical, but on top of that, it’s good story telling. It reminds me that graphics don’t equal plot. The remake, while it’s…um..you know 30-40 minutes too long…it still pretty awesome and our dear Kyle Chandler is in it. So definitely worth Tivoing…so you can zoom past the 10 minutes of the monkey ice skating with the girl.
