Phantom Animation Devices Visible In "KING KONG" (1933)

In the old days, stop-motion animators like KING KONG's Willis O'Brien and crew used a "surface gauge" to measure minute movements.

Sometimes they'd accidentally leave these devices in the shot. This happens at least twice in KING KONG. The first time isn't so noticeable. The second time is pretty obvious.

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material. Just having some fun with it. Hope you enjoy it!
