“Bring-‘em-back-alive” filmmaker Robert Armstrong, with scream queen (and Film Forum member) Fay Wray in tow, sets out in search of the Ultimate Attraction: The Greatest Ape of Them All – animated by the great Willis O’Brien – immortalized the just-constructed Empire State Building en route to his own enshrinement in world folklore.
