Merian C. Cooper Facts
Being the producer of King Kong (1933), he personally removed a scene in which four sailors, after Kong shook them off a log bridge, fall into a ravine and are eaten alive by giant spiders because, when previewed in January 1933, audience members either fled the theater in terror or talked about the ghastly scene during the entire movie.

During his time in Belyov, Cooper used the assumed name of Frank Mosher and was interviewed by the famous Russian author Isaak Babel.

Honored by NBC Radio's "This Is Your Life" (5 April 1949). Guests included Fred Astaire, Ginger Rogers, Fay Wray, and wife Dorothy Jordan.
