Summary
Explorer, war hero, filmmaker, and cinema pioneer Merian C. Cooper--the adventurer who created King Kong--was truly larger than life. "Pictures cannot be made from an executive's desk," "Coop" declared, and so he went to the far corners of the globe, with a motion picture camera in tow, in an era when those corners were truly unknown, untamed, and unforgiving. Cooper was one of the first bomber pilots in World War I. He then turned his attention to producing documentary films that chronicled his encounters with savage warriors, man-eating tigers, nomadic tribes, and elephant stampedes. He was the first to team Fred Astaire with Ginger Rogers, arranged Katharine Hepburn's screen test, collaborated with John Ford on Hollywood's greatest Westerns, and introduced Cinerama, the original "virtual reality." He returned to military service during World War II, flying missions into the heart of enemy territory in China
