I recently purchased this item, ----I am a life-long KONG fan, and this, ---by far my favourite-ever film,----is one movie I am extremely familiar with, having viewed it literally hundreds of times over the past 2 decades.
THIS PRINT is freshly-minted, richly-struck gold...by far the best I have ever witnessed, and this will be the version I will be sticking with 'til some super-hi-def version arrives: there is detail in this [the rippling water in KONG'S lair, lushly apparent jungle foilage,]that was until now invisible within the home entertainment market.
I resisted buying this, as I am UK resident, but fear not, the 2 KONG discs play fine in both my region 1 DVD players..had I known this, I would have purchased this 2 years previously: the 'SON of KONG' and 'MIGHTY JOE' seperate disks require multi-region facility, however.....but the clips of these sequels [of sorts] are represented on the KONG bonus-disk as being clear and bright......I am hoping to purchase a multi-region player before long, --definately---if it means I can aceess riches such as these...
BONUS FEATURES include: the PETER JACKSON 'spider-pit' sequence [vastly superior to 'youtube' viewings,] a splendid O'BRIEN test sequence from 'CREATION', which features evocative, fascinating animation of a TRICERATOPS mother and offspring, rare snatches of dialogue from MERIAN C. COOPER, FAY WRAY and commentary from RAY HARRYHAUSEN......and much, much, more. All housed in a natty, hinged tin box, with lavish early '33 lobby-card repros---I am absolutely delighted with this thoughtful, impressive package that has been lovingly put together by true enthusiasts who genuinely appreciate this evergreen, and tmeless, property.
