On This Day in Weird, December 17...
1833: An unknown assailant fatally stabs enigmatic man of mystery Kaspar Hauser in Ansbach, Bavaria.
1976: Theatrical premiere of King Kong, produced by Dino De Laurentiis. Unlike the 1933 and 2005 versions, employing stop-motion animation and CG technology respectively, De Laurentiis opts for a man in an ape suit and has him scale the South Tower of Manhattan's World Trade Center for the climactic showdown.
