Fay Wray and Bruce Cabot, King Kong 1933
King Kong was produced and directed by Merian C. Cooper and stars Bruce Cabot, Fay Wray, Robert Armstrong, Noble Johnson, and Sam Hardy. Merian C. Cooper based the film on a dream he’d once had about a giant ape destroying New York City. From everything I’ve read, Cooper poured his heart and soul into this movie and it’s obvious each and every time I watch it.
The PERFECT actress was cast in the role of Ann, Fay Wray. She was ideal for the role – ethereally beautiful, talented, vulnerable yet strong in many ways, and did she ever nail the frightened expressions and screams?!?!
