Default King Kong (1976) [French Import] - High-Def Digest review

Peter's review of the 1976 version of 'King Kong' is up. He says this this HD DVD import is a mixed bag -- the video transfer is surprisingly good, but the soundtrack can't overcome its dated origins and there's not a single supplement in sight.

Full review here:

You should link to the UK version at the end.

They actually have it in stock and after VAT comes off, it's 21.27 ($44.77)

He forgot to mention the high-pitched audio track. Compare it to the Paramount DVD and it is clearly off pitch.
