    Description

    King Kong (RKO, 1933). Swedish Oversized (25.5" X 47").
    Considered by most as one of the greatest horror/fantasy films ever made, King Kong was certainly one of the most innovative. The stop motion animation created by Willis O'Brien to be intercut with live actors set the standard that eventually led to the high tech CGI animation of today. But the classic story of "Beauty and the Beast" is another reason it is still held in such high esteem. Starring Fay Wray as Ann Darrow, Robert Armstrong as Carl Denham, and Bruce Cabot as Jack Driscoll, the non-stop action, set on a remote jungle island and among the skyscrapers of New York City, with dinosaurs, a giant ape, and angry natives, thrilled audiences upon its initial release in 1933, and still continues to entertain today. This rare oversized Swedish poster, reminiscent of the U.S. three sheet with its striking image of Kong atop the Empire State Building, displays brilliant color. There are pinholes in the corners and several in the image, a chip in the lower right corner, one tear into the field on the left border, with two smaller tears on the top and bottom borders. Don't miss this great opportunity to acquire this fantastic poster! From the Kirk Hammett Collection. Very Fine.
