Peter Jackson has been re-creating a lost scene from the original 1933 King Kong while working on his $292 million remake. The result a six-minute scene in which a dinosaur chases men on to a log, then Kong throws them into a pit where they are attacked by giant spiders and crabs will appear in a restored version of the 1933 film to be released on DVD in three weeks. The scene was filmed in 1933, but cut because director Merian Cooper thought it slowed the film's pace. Other than two pre-production sketches and one photograph, no remnant of the legendary "missing spider pit sequence" has ever been found. [More]
