King Kong (1976) Empty King Kong painting / film

There was a book that came out after the 1976 version of KING KONG was released, called "THE CREATION OF DINO DE LAURENTIIS' KING KONG." Here is a production painting of Kong wrecking a ship, which was never filmed:

I don't have the book itself, but I found some trivia on the film which was in the tome:

    -   the role of Dwan (Lange) was conceived for Barbra Streisand - hence the campy comedy attitude.
    -   the fog bank was created by gadgets powered by Volkswagon engines.
    -   the wall built to keep Kong out was first seen in a painted scene but was really built: 47 feet high, 500 feet long, made of eucalyptus tree trunks.
    -   the film was in constant danger of being scrapped (OK, no jokes please); there was a lawsuit involving Universal and RKO.
    -   the stuntwoman who falls 50 feet into Kong's hand in the tanker scene was paid a $1000 bonus for  her daring.

This book may be more interesting to look at than the film itself. I don't know offhand if it's available.
