    King Kong

    £160.00

    “And now, ladies and gentlemen, before I tell you any more, I’m going to show you the greatest thing your eyes have ever beheld. He was a king and a god in the world he knew, but now he comes to civilization merely a captive – a show to gratify your curiosity. Ladies and gentlemen, look at Kong, the Eighth Wonder of the World.”

    An original 1993, 60th Anniversary US one-sheet for the classic “King Kong”. Re-released numerous times since its original 1933 premiere, this one-sheet takes its design inspiration from the 1960s re-release poster as Kong holds Ann Darrow (Fay Wray) against the backdrop of the the New York City skyline. I do like the use of black and white as a homage to how the original release was filmed – it also makes the gold and red title lettering really stand out. Any paper for “King Kong” is extremely sought after and collectable, which makes this 1993 example hugely desirable as it was printed in very limited numbers to coincide with a strictly limited New York City cinematic release and the 60th Anniversary release of the movie on video. Offered in superb, rolled (as issued) condition it represents an excellent piece of cinema history from the most influential monster movie of all time.

    Trivia: This is the only film to debut at the two largest theaters in New York City, the Roxy and Radio City Music Hall, simultaneously. The total seating capacity was about 10,000; it sold out every performance (10 per day) at both theaters.
