RKO Original Argentinean Re-release 29x43 Poster LInen Backed Very Fine Condition

Original Argentinean Undated Re-Release One Sheet Poster (29x43), probably from the 1940s, for the Merian Cooper and Ernest Schoedsack monster masterpiece, KING KONG (1933) starring Fay Wray, Robert Armstrong, and Bruce Cabot. This film is one of the most influential movies in film history; indeed, every "monster" movie since owes something to KING KONG. When film director Carl Denham (Armstrong) hires unemployed New York actress Ann Darrow (Wray) to star in his new picture, he takes her to the remote Skull Island where, according to legend, there lives an awesome god-like beast named Kong. Ann is kidnapped by the natives and offered as a sacrifice to Kong, but Denham captures Kong and takes him back to America to shamelessly parade him before the amazed masses. Decades ahead of its time, the film is still fascinating today even with all the great achievements in special effects developed since its making. The visual imagery is complemented beautifully by one of the first feature length musical scores by Max Steiner, which conveys Kong's complex emotional state, especially in the exciting finale atop the Empire State Building. This original linen-backed stone lithograph one sheet is stunningly beautiful and in very fine condition. Some small tears have been repaired, but no paper is missing. This is really one of the nicest re-release posters for KING KONG. MovieArt Austin does not sell reproductions.
