Echoes From Skull Mountain

The first attempt to create  vocalizations of dinosaurs and other 
prehistoric animals was for the 1933  version of "King Kong". Sound technician 
famous drummer) Murray Spivack  outdid himself with some of the most 
memorable soundwork ever done. His  tyrannosaur is my personal favorite; so 
more reptilian than the modern  garbage truck compactor noise we've been 
getting since Jurassic  Park.
Here's about five minutes worth of some of the  actual sound dubs created 
for the movie. In addition, you'll hear Kong's roar,  footsteps or chest 
beating, birds, and Mary finding out what her 401K is now  worth. The pictures 
go roughly with the dubs. DV
