KING KONG (1933)

When first shot, the classic film KING KONG contained a scene later deleted from all prints. In it, the men thrown from the giant log by Kong fall into the chasm, and are attacked and devoured by giant spiders and scorpions. However, director Merian C. Cooper decided the scene hurt the pacing of the film, and had it removed. Since then, all footage of this scene has been lost, and is only known through stills and models.
