APE Vs. King Kong in Akron

The world of Advertising in the movies was always bout upstaging one another. Sometimes things go above and beyond the call of duty. Here’s two funny examples that obviously were not monkeying around.

Akron, 5-2-77 – It’s the battle of the apes in this Rubber City Rumble of movies. APE was a film picked up by Jack Harris after the production went into full stop when it was called The New King Kong. Somehow, I feel that this heart warming moment in cinema history was a response to that hurdle…maybe.


7-16-71, Burlington, VT – The Burlington reminded the readers that Marsha Jordan’s film was an Adult Love Story for Adults Only while the Mt. View was playing the stuff that you can take the kids to. The Over 18 set needs their celluloid happiness, too!
