King Kong (R1977) - (Fay Wray) Egyptian one-sheet
This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian one-sheet poster designed by Wahib Fahmy for a 1977 rerelease of the 1933 Merian C. Cooper film King Kong based on a story by Merian C. Cooper and Edgar Wallace, screenplay by James Ashmore Creelman and Ruth Rose and starring Fay Wray as Ann Darrow. Plot summary: Carl Denham [Robert Armstrong] is making a movie on Skull Island. He and the rest of his crew are unaware that a giant gorilla lives there, but when the filmmakers arrive they observe the local people preparing to sacrifice a young woman as the "bride of Kong." When those performing the ritual see the blonde Ann Darrow, they lose interest in the young victim they have chosen for their sacrifice. That night they sneak aboard Denham's anchored movie boat and kidnap Ann Darrow as an offering to Kong.
