58. 'King Kong' (1976)
This Seventies remake of the 1933 classic is one of the dumber blockbusters on producer Dino De Laurentiis's resume, which is saying a lot – it was the film's hideous and intelligence-insulting script, not beauty, that killed the beast. As a hippie-dippy primatologist-cum-photographer who seems to have an environmentalist's sympathy for Kong (while also romancing Jessica Lange, thus making him a perceived rival for the giant ape), Bridges is suitably dashing – at least, in that ruffled, earthy Me-Decade way. And not even the star is immune to the movie's dopeyness.
