Life-size King Kong model, probably RKO, circa 1932 or 1933Even up close, the working model built for King Kong was a pretty impressive sight to see. This was probably taken in 1932 (production on the film took more than a year: Jan 1932 to early Feb 1933) at RKO, with the native village and great wall scenes shot at the Culver Studios on Washington Blvd. And I bet he was a beast (pun intended) to get on and off that truck, which was often as he was used to promotion when the movie came out.

    Watched it (again) recently & this film does stand the test of time – a great film & always scary. Love it and love you, L&M.
