produced with very very small thumbnails of the pages on the bottom. And a very, very small unreadable icon appears in the center. When I click it, the webpage closes and I go back to the original webpage. Groan!So, what happens when you click the text: "click to enlarge and read"? Are the pages then shown large enough to read?

3. Hilda’s (Helen Mack) sad life with alcoholic father and pathetic “music career” on a nowhere island. But you end up rooting for her. She stands up and warns her father about Helstrom, defies flames in an attempt to rescue her father, accuses Helstrom to his face of murdering her father, she takes no for an answer by stow-awaying on the boat after Denham says he cannot take her. She’s a brave Sigourney Weaver of the 1930s!!!
5. Political dialogue, how’d that make it into the script?: “We must be in Russia. Here comes the Committee of the Workers.”
6. Altruistic Kiko, sacrificing his life for others. Sacrificing his life for the man who not only took away his father . . . but was also responsible for Kong's death!!! Sheesh, when a damn dirty ape is more noble than man, what does this say about man's so-called “civilization”?
If you look at SoK, not as a sequel about Kong (after all, Kong has died in the first movie), but rather a sequel about Denham, I think it a very good movie.

I think the sensibility difference shows (I think one gets that impression from the opening title that endorses the NRA!).

I doubt very much one of the big 4 (Warners-Universal-Fox-Paramount) would have greenlit a Kong or Most Dangerous Game any more than they would make a fantasy film set in Ancient Greece.

Many people considered it to be a "benevolent dictatorship" and the Supreme Court disbanded it in 1935 ultimately concluding it to be unconstitutional. Just FYI.- GJS
