...didn't even use the right models!  Here's a clip I made to prove it...

Photo from original spider pit footage. Shows crab holding victim in its claws. If you have hard time seeing it, move back from the screen. Sailor is right in the middle of the photo. Legs hanging down.

I haven’t seen this image before. That’s a nice shot of a hapless sailor, grasped in both giant claws.

I would love to see every deleted scene for KING KONG (1933) but this will never happen.

Some great stuff in those clips. Thanks so much for sharing. Do any of those models still exist? I'm thinking of the spider ones especially. RKO made great use of old props in their films. Even after Desilu took over I've seen some stuff, most memorably in an Untouchables episode, that I swear came from the 1932 Most Dangerous Game.

Looks like a cropped shot from a larger photo.  Is it?  Where'd you get this image from?

Got it from STOP MOTION MONSTERLAND on Facebook. And it is exactly the same as it is posted there.
