King Kong (film di John Guillermin del 1976)

Approdato nelle sale cinematografiche nel 1976 e prodotto da Dino De Laurentiis, KING KONG, diretto da John Guillermin, è un adattamento del film del 1933. Ne sono gli interpreti principali Jeff Bridges, Charles Grodin, René Auberjonois, Jack O’ Halloran, John Randolph e, al suo debutto sul grande schermo, Jessica Lange.

Durante una spedizione organizzata dalla compagnia petrolifera Petrox, alla ricerca di nuovi e proficui giacimenti, l’equipaggio s’imbatte nell’isola del Teschio popolata da una tribù che idolatra un enorme scimmia chiamata Kong, al quale vogliono offrire in tributo la bella Dawn, ma l’opposizione degli uomini della compagnia li induce a rapire la donna, che in seguito viene vestita “a festa” e legata in attesa dell’arrivo del loro “Dio”, in una scena tesissima e coinvolgente che dà inizio ad un amore surreale benché destinato per volontà della natura a morire prima di nascere. Una sera un orrendo serpente aggredisce Kong, dando l’occasione a Dawn di fuggire assieme a Jack, conosciuto sulla nave della Petrox. In seguito la bestia annienta il nemico e rincorre furioso la donna ma trova ad attenderlo una trappola che lo tramortisce e permette alla compagnia di catturarlo portandolo negli Stati Uniti per farne un fenomeno mediatico e di lucro, programma stroncato sul nascere all’enorme scimmia che si libera seminando morte e distruzione nella sua ricerca dell’amata, che finalmente ritrova portandola in cima a un grattacielo dove lo straordinario animale trova la morte sotto i colpi del fuoco nemico.

Recensito negativamente da molti critici, KING KONG tuttavia andò bene al botteghino arrivando ad essere il maggior incasso in Italia della stagione cinematografica 76-77’e ha tra i suoi meriti quello di creare tensione, paura attesa prima del l’apparizione del mastodontico protagonista, ideato e messo in piedi dal maestro Carlo Rambaldi, ben sopportato al trucco da Rick Baker, entrambi futuri premi Oscar.
