A funny thing happened on the way to the Empire State Building...and now, for the first time since his 1933 debut, King Kong, thelegendary ape of the big screen, tells his fascinating story. In My Side, he answers:
What was his romantic lead Fay Wray covering up? Not much, according to the wonderful and frank creature who sneaked several good peeks.
For which great power was on-screen nemesis Bruce Cabot a secret agent? Don't ask. Read.
How did Kong -- a serious and trained actor -- refuse to parrot his lines, unlike some of his costars, and get into character?
Kong also offers anecdotes and memories of David O. Selznick, Frank Sinatra, Bill Cosby, Stalin, and many more luminaries from his long and storied career. Gritty and powerful, this 132-foot simian's story will take you from the darkest jungle to atop the highest skyscraper of the day, but always keep you laughing with his hilarious side of the story.
