Ray Morton's "King Kong" is the first book to chronicle the making of all seven feature films in which Kong has appeared - including the hotly anticipated Peter Jackson film opening in December 2005. It includes: a profile of Merian C. Cooper, creator of "King Kong"; the development, production, and release of "King Kong"; "The Son of Kong"; "King Kong" vs. "Godzilla"; "King Kong Escapes"; the Oscar-winning 1976 remake; and the ill-fated 1986 sequel; "The Cartoon Kong"; "The Kongs that Never Were"; "The Stepsons of Kong"; "Mighty Joe Young" and "Queen Kong". The stories of the making of these movies are epic adventure and equal the films themselves. They have remained mostly untold, until now.
