KING KONG: This value-for-money 200-page hardback is the original novelisation by Delow W Lovelace, based on an idea by Edgar Wallace and Merion C Cooper.
It was originally serialised in 1932 in Mystery Magazine and then published in book form later that year.
The movie was then released in 1933 and became a huge international hit.
