Kong The King

June 08, 1986

Regarding Lewis Beale's "The Kong Isn't Dead; Long Live the King" (June 1), there always was and always will be only one "King Kong," and he comes in the form of the 1933 classic film masterpiece.

There was never any other "queen" for Kong himself, and that part will always belong to the one and only Fay Wray, and nobody else, ever.

Everything everyone else churns out on the subject of "King Kong" is nothing more than unimaginative, recycled rubbish. And, while the producers only claim to fame is monetary reimbursement for their boring efforts, the original masterpiece remains timeless and priceless not only for generations to come, but obviously for all eternity.
