Format: DVD
From the Warner's press release
Three editions:
The King Kong: Two-Disc Special Edition (SRP $26.99) will include the 104-minute restored and remastered B&W film on video in its original full frame, with Dolby Digital 2.0 mono audio and English, French and Spanish subtitles. Extras will include audio commentary (by Ray Harryhausen and Ken Ralston, with Merian C. Cooper, Ernest B. Schoedsack, Ruth Rose, Fay Wray and Robert Armstrong), the 2005 I'm Kong: The Exploits of Merian C. Cooper documentary, a gallery of trailers for other films by director Merian C. Cooper, the new RKO Production 601: The Making of Kong, Eighth Wonder of the World documentary by Peter Jackson (featuring the following featurettes: The Origins of King Kong, Willis O'Brien and Creation, Cameras Roll on Kong, The Eighth Wonder, A Milestone in Visual Effects, Passion, Sound and Fury, The Mystery of the Lost Spider Pit Sequence and King Kong's Legacy) and Creation test footage (with commentary by Ray Harryhausen).

The King Kong: Two-Disc Collector's Edition (SRP $39.98) will include all of the above in limited tin packaging that also features a 20-page reproduction of the original 1933 souvenir program, King Kong original one-sheet reproduction postcards and a mail-in offer for a reproduction of a vintage theatrical poster.

The King Kong Four-Disc Collector's Set (SRP $39.92) will include the King Kong: Two-Disc Special Edition along with The Son of Kong and Mighty Joe Young. It will NOT include the extras in the Collector's Edition tin.

Fortunately, The Son of Kong and Mighty Joe Young will also be available separately (as will The Last Days of Pompeii, also by Kong directors Merian C. Cooper and Ernest B. Schoedsack) for an SRP of $19.97 each.

Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
A number of reviews have complained about this disc -- everything from "it's too grainy" to "it isn't wide screen." While this disc isn't eye-candy on the level of The Wizard Of Oz or Gone With The Wind, it is an excellent transfer of the movie, and a worthy upgrade to the DVD if you are a fan of the film.

First of all, remember a few things -- the film is nearly 80 years old, and the original negative is long gone. That being said, the restorers did a fine job. There are no scratches, specks or vertical lines to be seen anywhere -- they've all been removed. Contrast and gray scale are excellent with deep blacks. Some scenes (particularly all those scenes in the jungle) really show a remarkable amount of detail -- it's definitely hi-def! Casual viewers might stick with the DVD, but film buffs and Kong fans will find this blu-ray essential.

As far as the complaints are concerned, yes there is grain, but consider it a necessary evil: if they were to scrub it all away, the picture details would go with it. Plus it's not nearly so grainy as some would have you believe. A few scenes -- especially those in the fog on the ship -- are EXTREMELY grainy, but most of the film is far less so, especially considering that the original negative is lost. In any case it's not an issue -- it never interfered with my enjoyment of the film and I'm watching on a 50" plasma from about 10'. And for those don't know, this film wasn't made in wide screen -- the black bars on the side just mean that you're seeing the entire picture as it was filmed.

Over-all, this is an excellent -- and accurate! -- representation of the film, and certainly the best it has ever looked on home video.

Format: VHS Tape
As a young child in the nineteen fifties, I used to watch this film whenever it appeared on TV on "Million Dollar Movie". I loved it then. I love it now. Time has not diminished the capacity of this film to mesmerize and hold the viewer in its thrall.
The story line is basic. Carl Denham (Robert Armstrong), a filmmaker and entrepreneur, leads an expedition to Skull Island where he discovers its deep, dark secret. It is a land where time has stood still, and prehistoric monsters still hold sway over the island and its inhabitants. There, the natives pay homage to the one whom they revere as "Kong", and who is, indeed, king of the island.
Denham, together with his beautiful, budding starlet, Ann Darrow (Fay Wray), as well as with the crew of the ship that brought him to Skull Island, investigates the strange ritual being performed on the island by its native population. Before she knows it, Ann finds herself captured by the natives. She is to become the bride of the mysterious "Kong".
When Ann discovers who the mysterious "Kong" is, she starts screaming and doesn't stop. The ship's first mate, Jack Driscoll (Bruce Cabot), who happens to be in love with Ann, manages to rescue her from the clutches of "Kong". Notwithstanding the fact that "Kong" has taken a shine to her, Ann is relieved to have been rescued by the man whom she loves.
Denham then arranges to capture the creature, whom he calls "King Kong" and takes him back to New York with them on the ship that brought them to Skull Island. There, King Kong makes his debut, one that movie lovers will long remember.
The special effects of this film were superlative for its time and still pass muster today.

Nearly faultless classic sci-fi film!
Every thing about the original King Kong is as close to flawless as the 30s could get. The fact that it's "weaknesses" are mostly subjective and related to it's age are proof that the story and the amazing way it was told survive into the 21st as a Classic. This movie struck the same... Read More

Did they do a new restoration for the Blu Ray?
The blu-ray of THE GENERAL is off the camera negative. KING KONG's camera negative is gone. That said, KONG on blu-ray still looks darn good; better than ever, and as good as it is ever likely to get.

King Kong 1933, Color and/or B&W?
King Kong (1933) b/w vs color?

The truth of the matter is that an excellent colorized version of the original King Kong does exist. It was released on laserdisk and the amount of added detail now visible in color was staggering! Although never released in color on DVD in the US, a sub-video... Read More

King Kong fought an Allosaurus and NOT a T-rex.
Ah yes - Allosaurus, who, according to Paleontologists, was larger, meaner, and had bigger teeth than T-Rex....
