    Manuel Sanjulian - "King Kong" Painting Original Art (undated). Ever since it burst onto theater screens in 1933, "King Kong" has reigned supreme as the greatest fantasy film ever made. In this incredible painting, fantasy art master Manuel Sanjulian captures the fateful, electrifying moment of Kong's first look at Ann Darrow, bound to the alter on Skull Island. Sanjulian's skills at painting lighting effects with a rich, warm atmosphere are ideally suited for capturing this key scene from the tragic love story. The image area of this painting measures approximately 36" x 48", and the piece is in Excellent condition. As Carl Denham said, "Some big hard-boiled egg gets a look at a pretty face and bang -- he cracks up and goes sappy."
