Description

    King Kong (RKO, R-1938). Lobby Card (11" X 14").
    Kong towers above the city in this impressive lobby from the 1938 re-release. The models built of Kong for the island scenes were 18 inches high, but the New York scenes implemented a new 24-inch version, therefore making our furry friend 6 feet taller for his city scenes. The film went through several title changes before settling on King Kong, including "The Beast" (its original title), "The Eighth Wonder", "The Ape", "King Ape", and just simply "Kong"... can you imagine this classic going by any other name? There are pinholes in the corners and borders, some edge wear, chips in the top and bottom left corners, a tear in the top border, a small hold in the lower border, and a smudge in the bottom right corner. These defects do not detract from the overall presentation of this card, which is still very strong. Very Good/Fine on Paper.
