King Kong elevated Fay Wray to the tip of the Empire State Building and the heights of cinematic immortality; she starred in more than one hundred and twenty pictures, received an Academy Award, and was directed by such masters as William Wellman, Erich von Stroheim, and Vincente Minnelli. Robert Riskin, Wray's husband, was one of Hollywood's seminal screenwriters, originator of the "screwball comedy" and the true populist voice of the "little guy" that gave Frank Capra's movies the "Capra touch"; Riskin's sophisticated stage plays and screen comedies of Hollywood's classic era became famous for their blend of humor and romance, wisecracking and idealism. Winner of the Academy Award for It Happened One Night and nominated for four other Oscars, Riskin was a producer and longtime collaborator with Capra on such pictures as The Miracle Woman, Platinum Blonde, American Madness, The Whole Town's Talking, Mr. Deeds Goes to Town, Lost Horizon, You Can't Take It with You, and Meet John Doe. Their daughter, Victoria Riskin, a former president of the Writers Guild of America West, tells the story of their lives, their work, their Hollywood, their fairy-tale marriage that ended so tragically.… (mais)

One of the best books I've read this year. This joint biography of actress Fay Wray (King Kong) and screenwriter Robert Riskin (It Happened One Night, Mr. Deeds Goes to Town) was done with love but well researched. The author is the daughter of Wray and Riskin. She gives a thorough look at her parent's lives before they met and after they were married in 1942. She had many of the letters between the two during Riskin's service in WWII. She examines the politics that screenwriter's dealt with during the formation of the Screen Writer's Guide as well as the HUAC hearings and blacklist. Both Wray and Riskin's love story is something that doesn't happen all that often and they seemed like two very decent human beings that are to be admired for their loyalty and beliefs. It is a well written book that often made you feel that you were right there in the room with her parent's. There are lots of great photos. ( )
