    Description

    King Kong (RKO, R-1946). Lobby Card Set of 8 (11" X 14").
    A smash success at the box office, King Kong had an enduring popularity among audiences for decades after its initial 1933 run and continued to gain more and more new fans with every re-release. Jam-packed with action and ground breaking special effects, Cooper and Schoedsack's monumental adventure brought audiences to theatres in droves with every screening, warranting a different ad campaign from the studio for each new run. A rare opportunity for any collector, Heritage offers the chance to own the complete set of these lovely lobby cards, boasting several images not shown in the originals. These fantastic cards have pinholes in the corners, corner bends, light staining and smudging in the borders with slight surface rippling, and the title card has a small top left corner nick. Two cards have light staining in the background, three have surface scuffs that have been colored in with ink, one card has paper remnants in the center, and the card featuring Kong battling the T-Rex shows some minor color fading. There is a smudge of blue paint in the bottom right corner of one card and some specks of paint in the bottom right corner of the title card. Fine+.
