King Kong Movie Suite (1933)

King Kong Movie Suite (1933)
Music by Max Steiner

When you take into account that this motion picture has spawned countless remakes and the score was ground breaking in so many ways, that it is amazing how fresh and fitting this movie suite actually is. So many of the cues build from simple themes into crescendos that have been copied so many times since, but remember that this music is the original. Mr. Steiner held to his vision by giving us a composition that is still listenable and reflective even after all these years. This is powerful orchestral music that stands the test of time and you have to give it a listen to appreciate the two movie suites that follow this. With a timing of 32:50, it simply is a "Classic" in every sense of the word. Please enjoy.  -MJ
