    Description

    King Kong (RKO, 1933). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Billed as "The Eighth Wonder of the World," the giant ape known as King Kong certainly did not disappoint! Ripped from his jungle homeland and brought to America by showman Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong), Kong's love for the beautiful Ann Darrow (Fay Wray) would eventually prove his undoing. Through the magic of stop-motion animation, Willis O'Brien brought Kong to life, making him just as real as any of his human co-stars. The result is a picture that is as thrilling and entertaining today as it was at the depths of the Great Depression. It's not surprising, then, that paper from this film is avidly sought after by collectors. This exquisite lobby card features Wray and Bruce Cabot embracing atop the Empire State Building in the penultimate scene of this great movie. In beautiful condition, perhaps the best copy we've seen, this brilliantly colored card shows no noticeable signs of wear. Near Mint+.


    Estimate: $1,500 - $3,000.
