  3. 1933 – King Kong starring King Kong opens in NYCity. Kong uses his fame and influence to enter the political arena and years later is shot by a an employee of the NYPost for writing a poorly accepted stimulus bill. Some believe the employee meant only to ‘taze’ the big guy. Many Americans noticed that Kong was still pretty black and should have started to gray given his age (only his hairdresser knows for sure).
