Song of the Day #1838

Song of the Day: Mighty Joe Young (“Main Title”) [YouTube link], composed by Roy Webb, opens the original 1949 version of this classic fantasy film, created by the folks who brought us the original “King Kong” (including producer and writer Merriam C. Cooper and special effects Wiz, Willis O’Brien, and his protege, Ray Harryhausen). It even stars Robert Armstrong, who plays a character very much like Kong’s Carl Denham. At least this one has a happier ending for the ape! And here’s to a Mighty ending for the winning team in today’s Super Bowl LV.
