summary ↠ eBook or Kindle ePUB ´ Delos W. Lovelace Delos W. Lovelace ´ 3 read review King Kong Ö eBook or Kindle ePUB Re most recently in 2005 and referenced endlessly in every medium from books to prime time sitcoms Beneath King Kong’s cultural significance however is a tense and surprisingly tender story One cannot help but be frightened by Kong’s uncontrollable fury be saddened over the giant’s capture mistreatment and exploitation by venal showmen or sympathize with the beas. As I write this review the Broadway musical version of King Kong finished its run last night Presumably life will continue on the touring circuit However I m grateful for the show s run because it was responsible for KING KONG the novelization of the original screenplay for the 1933 classic film coming back into print I recall reading a Bantam Books paperback copy which I still have long long ago when I was in elementary school But while the copyright of the motion picture was faithfully renewed no one ever renewed the copyright of the novelization and it disappeared into the oblivion of OOP books Three thoughts came to mind as I started collecting my points for this review It my seem ridiculous but I need to hide the review because it contains Spoilers No there s nothing Earth shatteringly new in the book especially for film fans who have studied the original concept drawings and also knew about the nasties lurking in the bottom of the ravine excised from the original movie But I do need to mention the ending This is uite like needing to hide a review of STRANGE CASE OF DR JEKYLL AND MR HYDE Yes folks mostly likely know that the two entities are the same person yet if you don t that s a doozy of a Spoiler The KING KONG novelization received an extra star for extensive nostalgia reasons The writing is competent though not great by any means Yet KING KONG is a character who has sparked the imaginations of Monster Kids for over 80 years as of this writing Such an icon readily deserves an extra star Although KING KONG is a classic that still enthralls I have always had a very difficult time watching it because of Kong s death at the Empire State Building There s the Spoiler The filmmakers really gave their tiny model a wonderful personality and I m always very saddened when the fighter planes shoot him down He has the same fate in this book and I dreaded my approach to the ending I suppose that s why I m a bigger fan of MIGHTY JOE YOUNG even though KING KONG is the better movie In addition to the famous excised ravine scene with the sailor munching giant spiders and lizards Ann Darrow is a bit pluckier in the book version The Reader also learns about her backstory The novelization does omit my favorite dialogue exchange from the movie as a Man and a Woman sit in the theater waiting for the display of Kong WOMAN Say what is it anyhow MAN I hear it s a kind of gorilla WOMAN as another theater patron pushes past her without apology Gee ain t we got enough of them in New York KING KONG is a remarkably short read Its charm is in recalling the film and there were plenty of exciting moments when those classic memories lit up my mind
