I had the Super8 print of this film when we watched it one night. My son Steven was very young at the time and got upset at the ending, I think he thought it was cruel. I never put that film on again and later sold it. Even though he is now in his 30s I don't think he would watch it.

I've always hated the ending of king Kong movies. Was so glad when the last one came out and Kong finally won in the end! Showed my boys the original on super 8 last year, and they hated the ending too.

Bringing back fond memories David.
The first time we projected Son of Kong to my son he was loving the film but when we reached the sad ending poor boy was sobbing for some time after it ended. Even now decades later he still remembers that screening.
