Kong

Want to own a piece of stop motion animation history?  Sure you do.  Got at least $1,000 to do it? Well, maybe not.  Five hand-made puppets and three promotional photographs from Ernest B. Schoedsack's adventure sequel The Son of Kong are currently up at auction.  These wood-and-fabric puppets, designed by RKO Cameraman Guy Neward, were used for the sequence in which Hilda (Helen Mack), Carl (Robert Armstrong), Charlie (Victor Wong), and Captain Englehorn (Frank Reicher) fled crumbling Skull Island in a rowboat.  Sorry, but the actual Son of Kong himself is a no show for this auction.
