1983 KONG Party Dan Fiebiger writes: Thought all you KONG-Peter-Jackson fans might maybe be interested in this: In March, 1983, at the Chinese Theater, there was a big 50th Anniversary KONG party, celebrating the release of the original 1933 film. Most everyone who worked on the film, or loved the film, or was related to someone who worked on the film, or worked in special effects, was there. I (now a retired efx animator) was there also, and shot many photos of the event, and shot the original KONG models (now owned by Peter Jackson) at Forre Ackerman's place later on. [More]
