King Kong Memorabilia!
A masterpiece of movie exotica and one of the top moneymakers of the 30's. Fortune hunters travel to Skull Island in search of the fabled giant ape "King Kong." Enticing him with the lovely Wray, they capture Kong and bring him back to New York to become a sideshow attraction. The rampaging ape escapes and ransacks the city searching for Wray, ending his quest swatting biplanes as he dangles from the Empire State Building in one of the most famous images in movie history. Directors Cooper and Schoedsack met as fliers in WWI Poland. They specialized in exotic documentaries and then adventure films with far-flung locations. Cooper later became a producer for David O. Selznick, and then produced John Ford masterpieces such as "Fort Apache" (1948) and "The Quiet Man" (1952), and one of the biggest hits of the 50's, "This Is Cinerama" (1952). Followed by "Son of Kong" (1934), a 1976 remake, and the related monkeyshines of "Mighty Joe Young" (1949). The special edition video includes archival footage, such as the scene in which Kong peels Wray like a banana and the excised giant spider scene. The laserdisc includes a second audio track with historical commentary from film historian Ronald Haver. Selected for the National Film Registry.
