When King Kong Killed Gary Cooper's Wife! ("KING KONG", 1933) (video)

When KING KONG was re-released years after its initial run...

...several scenes were removed due to violence or sexual content.
These scenes would not be restored until the 1970s.

One of these censored scenes showed the demise of a sleeping woman...
...plucked from her bed and dropped to the street below.

The actress was billed as Sandra Shaw, otherwise known as Veronica Balfe...
...or, the future Mrs. Gary Cooper.

She and Gary were married in December of that year.

It's still a shocking scene.

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