The King Kong Ultimate Guide evokes the brochure you might have bought at the cinema in 1933!
Head back to Skull Island with our luxury magazine guide to RKO’s legendary King Kong. Even after all these years, it’s the cinematic adventure romp of a lifetime, showcasing Willis O’Brien’s extraordinary stop-frame animation talents which are still loved by many, more so than modern takes with CGI.
The acting talents of Robert Armstrong, Bruce Cabot and even the incomparable Fay Wray are no match for the Eighth Wonder of the World himself, Kong! We lovingly present our deluxe shrine to this behemoth of a monster movie. Our King Kong magazine guide takes you right to the heart of the action, and has been studiously written and compiled by your usual Ultimate Guide authors, Nige Burton and Jamie Jones. The pair have raided the archive to bring you many rare and often unseen stills and posters which capture the very essence of Merian C Cooper’s sensational masterpiece, and each one is reproduced faithfully to the unbeatable high standard you’re used to.
Within the pages of this King Kong magazine you’ll find in-depth articles telling the story of the making of King Kong, its impact on cinemagoers on the time and its lasting legacy and influence on pop culture. There are also detailed biographies of the cast and crew, and a cheeky look at Kong merchandise through the ages. We also look at sequel The Son of Kong (1933).
Our King Kong magazine is stunningly designed to evoke the mystery and adventure of Edgar Wallace’s most famous story. Jump aboard the Venture as we head deep into the heart of the island you won’t find on any chart…
