    Description

    King Kong (RKO, 1933). Title Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Although Universal Pictures had blazed the trail into the horror genre, RKO was close on their heels hoping to reap huge profits at the box office. But in order to make their mark, the studio needed a truly great entry into the genre. Enter Merian Cooper and Ernest Schoedsack, who had already gained an Academy Award nomination for their silent film Chang. The two men had been impressed with Willis O'Brien's special effects prowess in The Lost World, and recruited the stop motion animator for their own fantasy-adventure picture. The resulting masterpiece was King Kong, one of the greatest fantasy/ horror films ever made. Title cards for this picture are among the most sought after collectibles within the movie poster hobby, and this particular item has a nearly flawless interior. There is airbrushing applied to the borders for pinholes, paper lifts on the verso, and some staining on the verso of the left border. It also has painted writing on the verso that does not show through. This is one of the brightest copies we've ever offered. Fine/Very Fine.


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