Yes its a great movie but that doesnt mean its mistake free..lol .here are some I have spotted.
When Carl Denham tells Jack Driscoll that they are going to Skull Island instead of Singapore, Jack Driscoll types "Skull Island" on his typewriter. But when he does that, it's already on his sheet, the page just moves from right to left and the typewriter bars are only touching the paper.
Continuity: When Ann and Kong are on top of the Empire State Building near the very end, he sets her down on top as he grows weaker. She begins to stand, pulling herself up on his fingers, the shot cuts and she is standing but his hand is now out of place back towards his body, not near Ann where it should be
Continuity: In the aerial shots of Manhattan during the airplane attacks there's much less snow on the ground than in previous scenes shot below.
Other: The New York scenes take place in winter, on a day cold enough for the lake in Central Park to freeze hard enough to hold KingKong's weight. Despite this, Anne Darrow shows no hint of cold or discomfort, despite wearing a sleeveless gown.KIng Kong takes her to the top of the Empire State Building, where it's even colder. Still no discomfort. In fact, she's able to climb a metal ladder, which should have frozen her poor little fingers off. By the time Driscoll reached her, Darrow should have been a block of ice. (The effects of adrenaline would never have lasted to keep Anne warm for that long).
Continuity: In the scene where Anne is looking at herself in the mirror prior to meeting Jack Driscoll, it keeps changing to her wearing a wrap around her white under garment and then not wearing the wrap.
Factual error: In at least one shot as Kong is on top of the Empire State building, the sunrise over Long Island is wrong. Three planes attack from the southwest and we see the sun rise in the east as Newtown Creek (Nassau River) glistens across the East River. The mouth of this river opens southward but in this shot everything is inverted with the mouth of the river pointing northward. Also, looking eastward, Roosevelt Island should be on the left of Newtown Creek, not on the right...ha ha
Factual error: The drop fare on the taxi is shown as 25 cents. However, this fare was not charged until 1952, when the former taxi fare of 20c 1st 1/4 of a mile and 5c each additional 1/4 of a mile (which went into effect in 1934) was increased to 25c the 1st 1/5 of a mile and 5c each additional 1/5.
Continuity: When King Kong is chasing Adrian Brody, he leaves a path of destruction before hitting the car. However, when Naomi Watts walks down the road (which is the same street Kong came down) there is no destruction and all the cars are parked as normal.
Continuity: As Jack Driscoll flees Kong in a yellow cab through a narrow alley, the view through the (missing) windshield shows a pedestrian in light-color overcoat crossing leisurely at the other end. When the car eventually emerges in the immediate next shot viewed from the sidewalk, that particular pedestrian simply disappears.
Factual error: The aircraft attacking Kong are Sopwith Camels. These Aircraft were retired out of service in 1922 and were never used by the USA.
Continuity: On the cliff where Ann is entertaining King Kong by dancing, juggling, doing flips, etc. her face goes from dirty, to clean, to dirty, and back to clean between shots.
Continuity: When Kong falls through a portion of the circular observation deck at the top of the skyscraper, he crushes the metal siding as well as one of the metal girders, making a large hole. When he puts Anne inside through the hole, the metal girders are now all undamaged. You can tell that this is the same hole because the camera moves around the entire building in the next shot and there are no other large holes.
Continuity: In the scene where the movie star is trying to talk them into giving up he has a rope slung around his chest over one shoulder. He never takes it off, but when he leaves he no longer has it, and Adrian Brody is holding it.
Continuity: In the scene where Jack Black and Adrian Brody are talking on the boat (as it's getting ready to leave), when the camera is focused on Jack, the cityscape behind him (through the window) is moving (as if the boat has started moving), but when it focuses on Adrian, the cityscape behind him (through the window) is not moving.
Continuity: Anne is soaking wet when she is being led through the natives. When she gets to the top of the wall she's dry.
Continuity: In a scene at the very top of the Empire State Building, Ann hugs Kong's left arm. In the very next shot, she is stood right in front of Kong, between both of his arms.
Continuity: After Kong breaks loose from the chains, in some shots the chain tower on the left side disappears: there is nothing next to the platform stairs.
Continuity: When we first come into the galley, several crossed-out lines of writing can be seen on the chalkboard mounted on the wall. When the crew enters to confront Denham about their true destination, the chalkboard is mostly blank, with only a couple of faint smudges.
Continuity: When Jack is rescuing Anne she has two cuts above her right eyebrow, the smaller cut changes positions and disappears/reappears in different shots.
