Beautiful and tender, Neil.

As usual, lovely use of negative space and contrasts.

Kong may have initially shunned the limelight like Garbo but in later life was forced out of obscurity to pay the bills. He appeared in a series of badly made Japanese B-movies, fighting men in Godzilla suits. He also had several walk on parts in Italian 'giallo' movies & Spaghetti Westerns.

His last screen appearance was in a zero budget sci-fi flick made in Paris in 1977. He played a moon monkey.

Yeah, I heard the story too...I'll tell you more about that later.
Incidentally, I'm inclined to think that there are no badly made Japanese B movies.
P.S. Kong loved the limelight.
