Happy Birthday!

In Alberta, Canada:

Fay Wray

was born

9/15/1907
(d.8/8/2004)
(In Britain, I guess that would be 8/8/2004)

Perhaps even more than "Frankenstein," the "King Kong" story touches some essential psycho-sexual-horror chord in us. Without Wray, it would have been just another dead monkey (I know!) story, though. Neither the wonderfully sexy Jessica Lange in the 70's nor the acceptable Naomi Watts this year comes close.

        king kong came to our town
        tore our town apart
        king kong put the fear of jesus
        into every heart

                by Dory Previn (born Oct 22, 1925 through 1929) on Mary C. Brown and the
                Hollywood Sign / On My Way To Where
    [thanx robomatic of Mudcat]

Also:
        Well old King Kong was a hell of'va gorilla
        He stood four stories tall
        They shot him with missiles from aeroplanes
        But he refused to fall.
        With Faye Ray (sic) in the palm of his hand
        He'll walk right over the world
        'Cause just like me he would do anything
        Just to keep his girl.

                "Old King Kong" by George Jones. Per Q of Mudcat [thanx to whom]
                verse one of one of the worst songs ever written
