Happy Belated Birthday, Obie & Kong!

Saturday, March 3rd, 2012

I apologize; I have been remiss. Yesterday was the birthday (March 2, 1886) of stop motion animator/special effects whiz Willis O’Brien (affectionately known as “Obie”), the man who gave life to King Kong.

By sheer coincidence, March 2 (in 1933) was also the date of the premiere of the greatest film ever made, King Kong.

So, a regrettably belated but deeply sincere “Happy Birthday!” to both o’ youse scrappers.
