A Few Favorite Memories of Robert Armstrong
- As Fay Wray's drunken brother, "Martin Trowbridge," blissfully ignorant of the ghastly fate awaiting him
at the hands of Count Zaroff in The Most Dangerous Game (1932).
- As movie stunt pilot "Woody Curwood," gleefully giving the finger to his best friend before plummeting to his death
at the hands of murderous director Erich Von Stroheim in
The Lost Squadron (1932).
- As the greatest movie adventurer of them all, "Carl Denham," who brought HIM back alive in King Kong (1933).
- As "Carl Denham" again, trying vainly to recapture lost glory with a charming but definitely Lesser Ape
in Son of Kong (1933).
- As "Jim Bowie," fighting the Good Fight to the finish at the Alamo in Man of Conquest (1939).
- As engineer "Arthur Galt," who turns out to be a Nazi agent known as "The Black Hangman,"
pitting his wiles against a ragtag assortment of Dead End Kid clones in the cliffhanger Adventures of the Flying Cadets (1943).
- As "Scoop McClure," who falls prey to mad scientist George Zucco and his deadly lab experiment The Mad Ghoul (1943).
- As "Max O'Hara" (Carl Denham traveling incognito?), chasing a giant gorilla again
(happily another great one, animated by Ray Harryhausen) in
Mighty Joe Young (1949).
