Wasei Kingu Kongu (和製キング・コング?, lit. Japanese King Kong) was a 1933 Japanese black-and-white silent film directed by Torajiro Saito. The film is now considered lost. It was a silent short based on the 1933 film King Kong and produced by Shochiku Studios (who released the original 1933 film in Japan on behalf of RKO). The film has been missing along with its sequel, King Kong Appears in Edo, for several years. They were probably either destroyed in the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in World War II
