King Kong (Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack, 1933). The movie really hasn’t lost anything over the years, I am glad to report. However stiff the exposition scenes can be, once we get to Kong’s domain, it really takes off.
The House on Haunted Hill (William Castle, 1959). It must be said, this is not one of Castle’s more inspired efforts. The voices-in-the-dark bit at the beginning is pretty good, however, and so is Vincent Price. But oy – that skeleton.
