King Kong (Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack, 1933) 🇺🇸

It all started with a misunderstanding. When Cooper told actress Fay Wray that she would be starring with the “tallest, darkest leading man in Hollywood”, she had no inkling that she’d end up captured by a hairy monster who was nothing like Clark Gable at all! The name is Kong, King Kong.

The Plainsman (Cecil B. DeMille, 1936) 🇺🇸

“Where sun rises, white man’s land. Where sun sets, Indian’s land.” The two “Pale Faces” don’t seem to have understood Indian law and appear on the wrong side, bathed in the orange glow of the setting sun. This 1936 western takes place in the mythical period spanning the life of the legendary Buffalo Bill. The film whisks us away on an extraordinary ride across the Great Plains.

China Seas (Tay Garnett, 1935) 🇺🇸

Hong Kong, 1935. The hard-working Kin Lung knows how to keep a secret. Quietly moored at its home port, the vessel awaits its latest cargo. On the quayside, scurrying travellers dodge baskets balanced on porters’ shoulders, stepping over caged pigs as they weave their way through the hustle and bustle of sedan chairs and rickshaws. You need your sea legs for the film’s opening 15 minutes as we bob up and down before even getting onboard. Afterwards, prepare yourself for seasickness during the 1,000 or so nautical miles that lie ahead across choppy seas, visited by a typhoon, a pirate attack – and tempestuous love affairs!

The Shanghai Drama - Scianghai (G.W. Pabst, 1938) 🇺🇸

“Scianghai” in Italian in the 1930s: a title that lashes and stings like a dragon's tail. The victim is on the ground, an angel fallen from a sky licked by the flames of hell. The city is burning and the dragon savours his victory. He surveys his captive, her eyes fixed on the reptilian gaze of a gaunt man with a hideously scarred forehead.
