4 Shots From 4 Films: Happy Birthday Fay Wray!


4 Shots From 4 Films is just what it says it is, 4 shots from 4 of our favorite films. As opposed to the reviews and recaps that we usually post, 4 Shots From 4 Films lets the visuals do the talking. Today is the birthday of 1930s Scream Queen Fay Wray (1907-2004), and since it’s so close to Halloween season (can’t wait!!), here are 4 Shots From The Horror Films of the fabulous Fay Wray!!

The Most Dangerous Game (1932; D: Irving Pichel & Ernest B. Shoedsack)

The Vampire Bat (1933; D: Frank R. Strayer)

Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933; D: Michael Curtiz)

King Kong (1933; D: Merian C. Cooper & Ernest B. Shoedsack)

  1. Fay Wray never winked at the audience in her horror films but gave them all the intensity she had. She was the ultimate damsel in distress and a lovely, voluptuous damsel indeed. When she is tethered for sacrifice in ‘King Kong’, Fay sells the scene by giving one of the greatest portrayals of terror I have ever seen and convinced the audience she is menaced by a giant 50 foot ape rather than a 12 inch high furry puppet. As long as movies are watched, she will never be forgotten.
