MrCere writes: It is definitely worth a mention to Kong fans that two films from Merian C. Cooper (director of King Kong) arrived on DVD this week. Cooper and partner Earnest B. Schoedsack filmed "Grass: A Nation's Battle For Life" and "Chang: A Drama of the Wilderness" are now available on DVD. Both are silent films and considered classics and historical landmarks in film. Filmed in Persia (now Iran) and the jungles of Siam (now Thailand) these film-makers and films were revolutionary and are still startling.
