    THIS IS A TWO PAGE LAYOUT!!!!

    King Kong (RKO 1933) One Sheet (27" X 41") Style A. This incredible poster features Kong as he is best remembered; on top of the Empire State Building clutching Fay Wray! Designed by S. Barret McCormick and Bob Sisk, this style one sheet was inspired by the artwork of Kong's creator, Willis O'Brien! The first time this copy of this poster was offered at auction was in 1996 at Executive Collectibles. It sold at that time for an astounding $80,500. Another copy of this one sheet was sold at Sotheby's in 1999 for the exact same amount. With only four known copies of this poster in existence, this could be the best of the four in gorgeous very fine+/near mint condition on linen.
