This is the King Kong documentary that you have been waiting for!
The special edition DVD of King Kong is a must have for any fan of this movie or of classic films in general.
The best part of that DVD (save for the movie itself) is the lengthy making of documentary that goes into considerable depth on every aspect of the making of the film from the conception and writing to the special effects and exhibition and everything in-between. A standout sequence is where Peter Jackson and an effects crew recreate for demonstration purposes some of the film's animation and special effects and even restore a lost sequence to the film. A must see for any stop-motion buff.
There are equally in depth segments on casting, music, writing and direction. This film is the best look the average person will ever get of the process of creating an epic film in the 1930's.
