    I never did like King Kong, any of the various versions. Big Godzilla fan though. Can anyone recommend any other Sci-Fi movies she did that would be worth renting?

      She really didn’t do SF, though a number of her films from the early 30s were horror, ie. Dr. X, The Most Dangerous Games (1932), The Vampire Bat (1933), and others. ….Game has a pretty good reputation, though I’ve not seen it. She tended towards adventure and romance pictures, and then, when she got back into films in the 50’s, comedies and such, usually playing someone’s mother.

      Jackson hoped she would do a cameo in his new version of King Kong, but I guess that won’t be happening now.

      BTW: She also gets mentioned in the theme to Rocky Horror.
