MON CINE for October 26, 1933 had a blurb about KING KONG on the cover above a photo of Thelma Todd,
and here is a page about KING KONG from inside this magazine.
Another page on KING KONG from an unidentified Belgian magazine from the same period.
The movie KING KONG was a smash hit. No remake will ever take it's place, despite the claims of various hucksters looking to make a fast back.
It sounds like a joke, but I'm not making it up. Of course, somebody else might have. Maybe it was all for publicity to begin with. At any rate it's one of a series, since we just had another photo with Thelma Todd practicing love scenes with Robert Andrews at Paramount's acting school.
