Trivia: The scene that involved Driscoll in the cave while Kong tries to get at him involved a small mock-up Kong hand and a miniature set. Driscoll's image was projected on a latex glove that was stretched across the cave entrance. This was the first instance of miniature rear projection.
Trivia: Two models were used for shooting. They both had different heads sculpted by Marcel Delgado. One for the Skull Island scenes and the other for the NYC scenes. Also a full scale bust was used that took 9 men to operate for the closeup scenes.
