    Description

    King Kong (RKO, 1933). Very Fine+. Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Forever melded into the consciousness of film fans everywhere as the first king of movie monsters, Merian C. Cooper and Ernest Schoedsack's colossal creation thrilled audiences from the moment of this primal adventure's sensational release. A marvel of cinematic ingenuity, special effects pioneer Willis O'Brien combined a bevy of cinematic techniques to bridge the gap between live action footage and the stop motion monster. He particularly wowed moviegoers with this remarkable scene, using his own legally patented method to create the shot of Kong brutally shaking his pursuers into the gaping chasm below. Already a scarce and highly sought after item by collectors, this card possesses some of the strongest colors that Heritage has ever seen, making it a choice piece that would display beautifully in any setting. Just as phenomenal, the card's excellent condition is a rarity within itself, showing only small pinholes, light creasing in the corners, and a British censorship stamp beneath the title. Very Fine+.
