Son of Kong: stop-motion fight scenes

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).
