A classic, the death of King Kong. The military dispatches Helldiver biplanes to destroy Kong atop the Empire State Building. The ape gently sets Ann down on the observation deck and tries to fend off the attackers. He manages to swat one plane down, but in the end he is mortally wounded by machine-gun fire and plummets to his death in the street below. We then learn it 'twas beauty killed the beast and not the 102-story drop.
