    Description

    King Kong (RKO, 1933). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    "Oh, no, it wasn't the airplanes. It was Beauty killed the Beast." No other image better encapsulates the film's final, most poignant line than this shot of Skull Island's colossus and the illustrious Fay Wray, a rare image of a peaceful Kong outside of the monster's constant rampaging. More than a box office hit, Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack's classic created a craze for giant monster films and has inspired countless auteurs across the globe. With its unprecedented action and use of special effects, this terrifying story will forever be counted among Hollywood's most monumental classics. One of the rarest and most beautiful images of the set, this fantastic piece also boasts some of the brightest colors Heritage has ever seen among any of the original lobby cards to date. Even better, it is in excellent condition, showing three minor corner bends and a faint dust shadow in the left side of the upper border and a tiny repaired tear in the right border. Very Fine+.


    Estimate: $8,000 - $16,000.
