This is a 27" x 39" Egyptian poster designed by Ahmed Fouad for a 1998 rerelease of the 1949 Ernest B. Schoedsack film Mighty Joe Young AKA Son of King Kong based on a story by Merian C. Cooper, screenplay by Ruth Rose and starring Terry Moore as Jill Young. Plot summary: Since her childhood Jill Young [Lora Lee Michel/Terry Moore] has raised a 15-foot gorilla from infancy. A promoter persuades Jill to bring Joe to the USA for a series of public appearances, which ultimately do not go well. Some unruly patrons at one of Joe's nightclub appearances ply him with drink, causing the beast to go on a destructive drunken rampage. This gets him sentenced to death by outraged authorities. This original version of Mighty Joe Young really was the son of King King because of improvements in monster animation, largely due to the work of newly hired Ray Harryhausen.
