King Kong (1933): Any news?  

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I've heard only vague rumors that the original KING KONG was
undergoing a restoration and transfer to DVD. Is there anything to this? Has a release date or any other solid
news been released on it?

I've checked DIGITAL BITS and the like and can't seem to
find anything. Thanks in advance for any word.

I have the movie on Vhs and I have the remastered to Dolby Surround Sountrack of the movie. As to it's beccoming a DVD your guess is good as mine.

Mike,

a french dvd of king kong has been released.It includes two versions:the french (85 mn) and the international (I think) of 100 mn.
Unfortunately, picture and transfers (and master?!) are not very good.
DNR strongly used.

there is also a Japanese NTSC release (region 2) that's been out for a while... i do not, however, know anything about the quality of the transfer.

I have the Greman R2 PAL version. Compared to my old NTSC LD it has great videoquality and it is not the "darkened" version.

Thanks to all for your responses. Being a fan of Willis O'Brien's work, and after seeing the wonderful restoration
of THE LOST WORLD (1925), I had hopes something might yet
happen this year. Oh, well, there's always other classics, like THE THIEF OF BAGHDAD.
