Image detailing an iconographic painting of 'King Kong' partially extracted from a Polish film poster for the 1968 movie King Kong Escapes! Originating from a 1933 stop-motion animation, remade in 1976 in the United States of America by Italian Producer Agostino De Laurentiis, and again in 2005 by New Zealand film director Sir Peter Jackson. With several other film sequels, this global character has lived throughout the century in other visual formats such as cartoons, comics and books.
