Important Added Info: Note that this classic image of King Kong looming over the New York skyline appeared in the original theater program, but did NOT appear on any of the original lobby cards or posters. It was one color in the original program, and then this same image was used for a 1938 re-release lobby card (in full color), and again (this time one color) for a 1952 re-release lobby card, and finally, once again in full color in a 1956 re-release lobby card!
Condition: good. The card was folded down the middle at one time. There are two tears in the lower left border that were repaired with masking tape from the back. There are two tiny pinholes in the top center and one in the middle of the left border.
