Merian C. Cooper
King Kong was produced and directed by Merian C. Cooper and stars Bruce Cabot, Fay Wray, Robert Armstrong, Noble Johnson, and Sam Hardy. Merian C. Cooper based the film on a dream he’d once had about a giant ape destroying New York City! When he spoke to Fay Wray about her role in the iconic film, he told her, “You are going to have the tallest, darkest leading man in Hollywood.”
He was not wrong!
