King Kong For Sale – Really!
Christie’s auction house in London will be auctioning the 22-inch, well, action figure of King Kong used in the filming of the movie of the same name. In specific, the little guy was used in the Empire State Building scene at the end of the movie.
“Oh, no, it wasn’t the airplanes.”
Only the metal part (see right) survives; the cotton/rubber/latex/rabbit’s fur “clothing” rotted off years ago. The auction will happen around Thanksgiving; I’ll bet lots of well-heeled Hollywood moguls have aliases bidding on the trophy.
That's not Bob Burns' one is it? I can't imagine him parting with his unless there were a massive crisis.
