Queen Kong (1976 UK)

A gender reversal cash in on the 1976 King Kong remake, mostly a comedic effort - not just the big ape but also all the characters are reversed: this time it's an egotistical female film director and her mostly female crew who seek out the ideal pretty boy/young man to take with them on an adventure in Africa. There was a previous effort - Konga in 1961 - but that earlier effort tried to be serious; this one is tongue-in-cheek. Another cash-in about the same time was the South Korean A*P*E.  BoG's Score: 4 out of 10



Kong Trivia: this never got a theatrical release in the UK, due to legal action from Dino, producer of the '76 Kong remake; it had limited release in a couple of other European countries and eventually gained cult status in Japan...
