    To be honest, I knew him first and foremost as the man who was King Kong in 1976.

    Rick humanised Kong, mainly through the use of his eyes behind the mask in that much derided, but I feel underrated, film.

    Of course, since then, he has gone on to be a legend in the movie make up industry.

    But he will always be Kong to me!

    The man is a legend. His work is amazing, and I will always remember that he was the man who scared the shit out of me when I watched AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON without my mom knowing. I had nightmares for weeks.
