Whether discussing the erotic aspects of King Kong, examining the works of Val Lewton, contrasting the director's attitude toward the monster in Frankenstein and The Bride of Frankenstein, accounting for the special genius of Lon Chaney, or comparing the various versions of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Clarens entertains as he enlightens. Supplemented with a new introduction by J. Hoberman, Village Voice film critic and coauthor of Midnight Movies (also available from Da Capo Press), and an extensive filmography listing complete credits for over 300 films, this fascinating study illuminates both the genre and the reasons for its popularity." -- taken from back cover Notes: Originally published: An illustrated history of the horror film.

It examens humanity's highly charged relationship with primates and draws connections between debates about evolution, race, aesthetics and sex - from satirical cartoons of gorillas in Punch! to HR Hopp's famous World War One recruiting poster Destroy this mad brute: enlist, which shows Kaiser Wilhelm as a large ape. Many incarnations of the Beauty and the Beast tale in art and film unfold in Kiss of the Beast - from French artist Emmanuel Fremiet's sculptures of a gorilla carrying off a woman of 1859 and 1887, to the classic 1933 image o Fay Wray in the grip of King Kong. Early short films and animations; groundbreaking expeditionary documentaries; iconic 'monster' movies from 130s to 1950s Hollywood; and some of the many versions of the Kong story from America, Japan and Hong Kong are also featured. Kiss of the Beast: From Paris Salon to King Kong is richly illustrated with film stills from many famous big ape and monster movies - including King Kong, Frankenstein and Creature from the Black Lagoon - as well as posters, sculptures, painting, prints and rare books. This book was published in conjunction with 'Kiss of the Beast', an integrated exhibition and film program presented by the Australian Cinematheque, Queensland Art Gallery.
