King Kong Vintage movie poster Lobby Card 8

$425.00

King Kong, 1933
Original Vintage Lobby Card movie poster

Offered here is a vintage original 11 x 14 in. U.S. lobby card from KING KONG, produced by RKO in 1933 (with David O. Selznick as Executive Producer) and co-directed by Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack. This lobby card is from RKO's 1952 theatrical re-release of the film, which was one of several theatrical re-releases of this extremely popular and iconic horror film.

The image depicts an exaggerated image of King Kong towering over the New York skyline as he clutches Ann Darrow (Fay Wray) in his hand. The large border artwork on the right features a close shot of Kong which appears on one of the two original 3-sheet posters from the film's 1933 release. RKO issued a duotone set of lobby cards for the 1952 theatrical re-release with a blue/green tint. As stated in the lower right corner, this card is number 8 from a set of 8 cards.

Measuring 11 x 14 in., this lobby card is in excellent condition with a staple hole and signs of wear at each corner (there are 2 staple holes at the bottom right corner), 3 staple holes in the lower portion of the left outer white border, a horizontal crease running the entire length of the card along the bottom edge of the image (as if a previous owner had done this to either fit the card in a frame or mask out the credits in the lower outer white border) and light surface wrinkling. This rare original theatrical lobby card presents itself very well despite these minor flaws. Original material from KING KONG ranks among the most sought after of all of the classic 1930s horror films.
