Son of Kong

Lot # 628 - Entertainment Memorabilia Live Auction - Five Hand-Made Puppets and Three Promotional Photographs

Stock #103761

Five hand-made puppets and three promotional photographs from Ernest B. Schoedsack's adventure sequel The Son of Kong. These puppets, designed by RKO Cameraman Guy Neward, were used for the sequence in which Hilda (Helen Mack), Carl (Robert Armstrong), Charlie (Victor Wong), and Captain Englehorn (Frank Reicher) fled crumbling Skull Island in a rowboat.

These wood-and-fabric puppets - one each resembling Hilda, Carl, and Charlie, with two resembling Englehorn - are inset with metal screws, with string wrapped around their wrists to aid with motion. The black-and-white stills show the puppets staged for an article about Neward in Occidental Center Magazine. The puppets are fragile from age, with scuffs and tears to the fabric from use. Dimensions (puppets, each): 18 cm x 16.5 cm x 7.75 cm (7 "x 6 1/2" x 3"); (stills, each): 21 cm x 25.5 cm (8 1/4" x 10")
