King Kong

I suppose there's no danger
in New York.

Listen, there are dozens of girls
in this town...

...that are in more danger
than they are with me.

Yeah, but they know
that kind of danger.

You never had a woman
in any of your pictures.

- Why do you want one?
- Holy mackerel!

Do you think I wanna haul
a woman around?

- Then why?
- Because the public, bless them...

...must have a pretty face.
Sure, everybody likes romance.
Isn't there any romance or adventure
without having a flapper in it?

Well, Mr. Denham, why not take
a picture in a monastery?

Makes me sore. I go out,
sweat blood to make a swell picture...

...then the critics
and the exhibitors all say:

"If this picture had love interest,
it would gross twice as much."

The public wants a girl, and this time
I'm gonna give what they want.

- Don't know where you'll get her.
- I've gotta get her, Weston.

We've gotta leave by morning.
- We've gotta be gone by daylight.
- Why?

Well, there's a good reason.
Everything I hear about it
makes me like it less.

I'm glad I didn't get you a girl.
You are, eh? Well, I'll show you.
Do you think I'm gonna give up
because you can't find me a girl?

I'm going to make
the greatest picture in the world.

Something that nobody's
ever seen or heard of.

They'll have to think up a lot
of new adjectives when I come back.

- Where you going?
- Going out...

...and get a girl for my picture.
Even if I have to marry one.

- Stand aside, please. Get your case later.
- Can I take my things?

Say, lay off the shoving, will you?
- Oh, I didn't mean to shove you.
- Excuse me.

What do they give you in this joint?
Soup tonight. Coffee and sinkers
in the morning.
