Phantom Support Rods During Kong vs. T-Rex Fight in KING KONG (1933)(video)

The fight between King Kong and the T-Rex is a terrific action sequence... well as being some of the finest stop-motion animation ever put on film.

What many people never noticed (at least, not until the DVD release allowed them to study each frame)…

...are the support rods for the models which are visible in some frames.

When viewed normally, they're hardly noticeable.

But once you're aware of them, they're a reminder of the animators' artistic efforts.

I neither own nor claim any rights to this material.  Just having some fun with it.  Thanks for watching!
