Celui qui a influencé toute une génération en animant image par image le renommé King Kong, le regretté Willis O'Brien, a marqué l'histoire du cinéma pour toujours. Parmi ses courts et long métrages, on notera The Dinosaur and the Missing Link, The Ghost of Slumber Mountain, The Lost World, King Kong, Son of Kong, Mighty Joe Young, The Beast of Hollow Mountain, The Black Scorpion et Behemoth, the Sea Monster. When he did King Kong, we wonder if he had any idea how many kids who saw the movie would later become stars of movie history. We are forever indebted to the late Mr O'Brien.
