"The clear choice for studying its masterful effects must be the Voyager release." -David C. Fein, Cinefex

Horror and pathos are magically combined in this tragic story of a giant gorilla who dies for love in one of the most spectacular finales ever filmed. This cornerstone of American popular culture is even more spectacular when viewed in Criterion's editions, which feature a great transfer and audio commentary by film preservationist and historian Ronald Haver.

Criterion's CAV special edition also includes:

  • Visual essay on the making of King Kong, covering such topics as preliminary sketches, special effects, model design and construction
  • Original footage from Creation, a pre-Kong prehistoric monster movie
