KING KONG!

That's right! Dino's fabled 1976 King Kong with Jeff Bridges and Jessica Lange is on AMC tonight at 8:00 PM EST.

I didn't know where to put this, so I put in Coax since it's on TV. If someone wants to move it to Shamless Promotion, that's cool.

I should know better, but the brain is slow today (water main break - no water, no coffee). What's wrong?/What should I change it to?

Sorry, jumped the gun on that one. It made a ton of coin for the 70's. I'll leave you for Dino to deal with now...

The commercials last night during the Graduate advertised Dino's Kong. And if you go to AMCTV.com, you can watch a Kong 76 clip.

TCM is playing the original tonight - check your local listings for the time (looks like 5 pm for West Coasters, 8pm for the east, but I'd check).
