Celebrity Monday - Naomi Watts as Ann Darrow

If you have watched the movie you'll know right away just by this picture who I'm "talking" about today.


Even if you didn't you may be able to.

Well, I won't post anything about the actress because the doll was not about the actress, but her role on the movie king Kong, back in 2005. Naomi Watts played Ann Darrow on the movie King Kong, originally produced in 1933:

In 1933 New York, an overly ambitious movie producer coerces his cast and hired ship crew to travel to mysterious Skull Island, where they encounter Kong, a giant ape who is immediately smitten with leading lady Ann Darrow. - http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0360717/


The 2005 King Kong is the remake of the 1933 movie by director Peter Jackson. The story is of a film director and his crew who go to a mysterious island to shoot their movie. Their they find and capture King Kong who they bring back to the states. - http://www.moviefanatic.com/movies/king-kong/

 


Some pictures of the actress, so you can see her face better and compare the doll with it.

Isn't she beautiful?

Anyways, the Barbie doll was released on 2002 (3 years before the movie, released in 2005 - maybe this doll was not based on the actress at all, but only the role of Ann Darrow, as this is a old movie).

I have decided to leave it anyways as i think the doll does look like her, except for the "scary" eyes.





I also found on this website: http://www.fanpop.com/spots/barbie/images/25199178/title/jessica-lange-king-kong-barbie-photo this picture showing two different boxes and set up for this doll. The one in the right was created based on Jessica Lange, the actress who played Ann Darrow on 1976.




The doll in the left is a Collector Edition, designed by Sharon Zuckerman.

Barbie salutes the mystique of a classic film with Starring Barbie® doll in King Kong. Inspired by the movie's final, breathtaking moments, she wears a fabulous ensemble reminiscent of the film's original costume. Her gown, of pink charmeuse and chiffon, brings a perfect theatrical flair. Matching pink shoes, a golden faux diamond brooch, and earrings are her glamorous accessories. - http://www.barbiecollector.com/shop/doll/starring-barbie-doll-king-kong-56737
I did like the doll as it would be a nice add to my collection. I grown up watching this movie, can't count how many times, just gives me nice memories from my childhood.

Hope you enjoyed :-) Have a nice Week!!
