King Kong

King Kong is an archival recording of an audio adaptation of the classic adventure film of the same name, in which an expedition to bring a giant ape back to civilization results in disaster. This version is from an LP record from the 1960s.

This relatively rare Golden Records audio production of “King Kong” aired sometime during the early 1960s, most likely in 1963 or 1964. Not strictly a dramatization meant to be broadcast for an old time radio program, it was part of a series of LPs titled Famous Monsters Speak, featuring classic monsters (Frankenstein, Dracula, Wolfman, etc.) advertised in, and promoted by Famous Monsters of Filmland.1)
