KING KONG (1933) on Blu-Ray. Released September 28th, 2010.

This is a newly remastered print of the wonderful original King Kong with lots of extras. In addition to the film, there is a documentary on Merian C. Cooper, commentary by such as Ray Harryhausen, another seven-part documentary that explores all aspects of the making of the film, and a 32-page illustrated booklet about the movie written by Rudy Behlmer. This is a beautiful package that presents the film with every sequence intact. This also includes the theatrical trailer and the lost spider pit sequence. You can get this special Blu-Ray box set at Warner Brother's official site.

Verdict: Now's the time to take another look at King Kong. ****.
