    Wow, 96. I hope I make it that far! :) Ironic that they're making a new King Kong (aren't they?) I remember hearing something about Peter Jackson directing it.

    a friend of mine got to photograph her last fall... she lived in the trump tower, and he asked her how she could afford that, being 96 and very retired. to this she replied, "i married well. twice." what spirit!

    Yes she was first married to writer John Saunders, then Robert Riskin who wrote several Capra films but he died a few years after the marriage, she then married Riskin's doctor several years later.

    Thanks for posting the picture, she looks great for a lady of 96.

    My prayers go out to her family and friends. May she rest in peace.

    It seemed that the majority of her life was post retirement from the screen.

    Does anyone know her will play her role in the new movie?

    Not I. I definintely don't want to live that long. Chances are too high of debilitating mental disease. But good for her. I loved her in King Kong. The way she squirmed. Oh!

    I'm pretty sure it's Naomi Watts. At least, that's what it said last on the internet movie database :rolleyes: I think she'll be good for the part.

    "Whatever happened to Fay Wray
    That delicate satin draped frame
    As it clung to her thigh
    How I started to cry
    Cause I wanted to be dressed just the same..."

    Don't dream it, be it! :D

    Her best-remembered leading man was tall, dark, and handsome, as they say.

    It's funny that a star of silent film ended up being famous partly for her screams!
