King Kong

Quotations

Carl Denham: Some big hard-boiled egg gets a look at a pretty face and bang–he cracks up and goes sappy.

Captain Englehorn: He says, “Look at the golden woman.”
Carl Denham: Yeah, blondes are scarce around here.

Jack Driscoll: Why, you’re crazy. Besides that, he’s on a cliff where a whole army couldn’t get at him.
Carl Denham: Yeah, if he stays there. But we’ve got something he wants.

Carl Denham: Why, the whole world will pay to see this!
Captain Englehorn: No chains will ever hold that.
Carl Denham: We’ll give him more than chains. He’s always been king of his world, but we’ll teach him fear. We’re millionaires, boys! I’ll share it with all of you! Why, in a few months, it’ll be up in lights on Broadway: Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World!

Carl Denham: And now, ladies and gentlemen, before I tell you any more, I’m going to show you the greatest thing your eyes have ever beheld. He was a king and a god in the world he knew, but now he comes to civilization merely a captive–a show to gratify your curiosity. Ladies and gentlemen, look at Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World!

Carl Denham: Don’t be alarmed, ladies and gentlemen. Those chains are made of chrome steel.

Police Lieutenant: Well, Denham, the airplanes got him.
Carl Denham: Oh no, it wasn’t the airplanes. It was beauty killed the beast.
