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!
Classic Monsters lovingly presents its deluxe shrine to this behemoth of a monster movie. Its King Kong magazine guide takes you right to the heart of the action, and has been studiously written and compiled by the 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 cinema-goers 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).
