1977 "King Kong" remake ad

From my copy of the Macon Telegraph, dated Friday, January 14, 1977, comes these two kong-sized items; first, the ad for the "Held Over!" movie in it's "5th Smash Week!" I took a date to see it at that very theater; I remember the movie more fondly than the date. It's pretty bad when a big hairy ape is more memorable than someone you are taking out!

And a unique Jim Beam ad that ties in both with the movie and "Ripley's Believe It Or Not."


  1. I got the free poster that came with a premium you had to mail in for. Thanks for the blog. Keep posting, I look for this type of material regularly. I do appreciate the work.

  2. You might need some Jimmy Bean to watch it...actually that would apply more to King Kong Lives..LOL
