A novelization of the original film was published in December 1932, as part of the film’s advance marketing. The novel was credited to Edgar Wallace and Merian C. Cooper, although it was in fact written by Delos W. Lovelace. Apparently Cooper was the key creative influence. In an interview, comic book author Joe DeVito explains:
“From what I know, Edgar Wallace, a famous writer of the time, died very early in the process. Little if anything of his ever appeared in the final story, but his name was retained for its salability … King Kong was Cooper’s creation, a fantasy manifestation of his real life adventures. As many have mentioned before, Cooper was Carl Denham. His actual exploits rival anything Indiana Jones ever did in the movies.”
This conclusion about Wallace’s contribution agrees with The Making of King Kong, by Orville Goldner and George E. Turner (1975). In a diary entry from 1932, Wallace wrote: “I am doing a super-horror story with Merian Cooper, but the truth is it is much more his story than mine … I shall get much more credit out of the picture than I deserve if it is a success, but as I shall be blamed by the public if it’s a failure, that seems fair” (p. 58). Wallace died of pneumonia complicated by diabetes on February 10, 1932, and Cooper later said, “Actually, Edgar Wallace didn’t write any of Kong, not one bloody word… I’d promised him credit and so I gave it to him” (p. 59).
The few differences exist in the novel, as it reflects an earlier draft of the script that became the final shooting script.
The original publisher was Grosset & Dunlap. Paperback editions by Bantam (U.S.) and Corgi (U.K.) came out in the 1960s, and it has since been republished by Penguin and Random House.
In 1933, Mystery Magazine published a King Kong serial under the named of Walter F. Ripperger. This is unrelated to the 1932 novel.
The King Kong Show (1966). In this cartoon series, the famous giant ape befriends the Bond family, with whom he goes on various adventures, fighting monsters, robots, mad scientists and other threats. Produced by Rankin/Bass, the animation was provided in Japan by Toei Animation, making this the very first anime series to be commissioned right out of Japan by an American company. This was also the cartoon that resulted in the production of Toho’s Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster (originally planned as a Kong film) and King Kong Escapes.
