    Didn't see anything on this in the other Kong threads...

    I finally made it to the sequels in my King Kong set this week...

    Has anyone noticed the tendency of Son of Kong to turn from black and white to green from time to time? It's no film classic, but was this a poor remastering job? Did someone forget to turn off a button in the control room?

    Didn't notice that on mine when I watched it last week.

    Not the best movie, somewhat laughable at times, but still fun.

    By the way, why does the poster and thus the DVD cover read "Son of Kong" but the movie title frame itself, and IMDB.com, say "The Son of Kong. Little stuff like that bothers me.

    I'm bugged by things like this, too. It's always baffled me that the onscreen title is Bride of Frankenstein and the cover adds a "The."

    I also noticed the green issue on The Son of Kong. When I create black and white DVDs I always turn the color settings all the way down to prevent this. Seems elementary...
