These scenes are from Son of Kong, the justly neglected 1933 sequel to King Kong. Most of the original Kong cast & crew contributed to this film, which was marketed as a comedy. Few would argue that this film captures any of the awesomeness that imbued its predecessor, and it remains a seldom-seen historical curiosity. However, the stop-motion scenes of the main character, a smaller & friendlier albino version of Kong, have an infantile charm to them. And who among you can not shed a tear when his whole world literally crumbles and sinks into the ocean (when a devastating earthquake strikes Skull Island).
Certainly, I do not need to post up this music video of The Verve‘s 1997 song Bitter Sweet Symphony, I mean it’s already been viewed over 200,000,000 times! But, it’s a great song, no matter the tortured copyright issues stemming from its sampling of previously recorded material by the Andrew Oldham Orchestra, which itself was derived (or inspired) from the Rolling Stone’s song The Last Time, which if you listen to, sounds absolutely nothing like Bitter Sweet Symphony and has totally different lyrics. I had never seen the music video featuring vocalist & song writer Richard Ashcroft, and it is really great!
