King Kong Cometh pays homage to the colossal gorilla who has wreaked havoc on the silver screen since 1933. This vividly illustrated compendium traces the evolution of King Kong, from his predecessors in the jungle-movie travelogues of the 1920s and 1930s to B-movies and American and Japanese spin-offs of the legendary motion picture. Highlights include the infamous faked "mondo movie" Ingagi, the influence of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's The Lost World, Edgar Wallace's original story, Kong animator Ray Harryhausen, scream queen Fay Wray, the impact of Kong on monster mags of the fifties, sixties, and seventies, Dino de Laurentis's remake of King Kong in 1976, and finally, the cinematic event of 2005 — Lord of the Rings director Peter Jackson's multimillion dollar remake of King Kong. Offering the best new and vintage writings on King Kong, his forebears, and his descendants, King Kong Cometh provides monster coverage to satiate the avid King Kong fan. Includes 100 black-and-white photos.
