TriviaReferenced in the 1998 song "Are You Jimmy Ray?" by Jimmy Ray. She had a daughter, 'Susan Riskin', by her first marriage to the writer John Monk Saunders and two children, 'Robert Riskin Jr' and Victoria Riskin, by her second marriage to the writer Robert Riskin. Best remembered as the girl held in the hand of RKO's King Kong (1933). In January 2003, a 95-year-old Fay Wray was awarded the "Legend in Film" Award at the Palm Beach International Film Festival when she appeared there in person to celebrate Rick McKay's film Broadway: The Golden Age, by the Legends Who Were There (2003), which she also appeared in. In addition to her honor, McKay's film was honored with the Audience Award "Best Documentary" of the festival by unanimous vote. Adrien Brody and Robert Evans won awards in addition to Wray and McKay at the same festival. Despite leaving Canada at an early age, she often visited Cardston, Alberta, her hometown. On August 10, 2004, two days after her death, the lights on the Empire State Building in New York City (scene of the climax from her most popular film, "King Kong") were dimmed for 15 minutes in her memory. Buried at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, 6000 Santa Monica Blvd., Hollywood, California. This cemetery is near downtown Hollywood just blocks from Hollywood and Vine Streets. The cemetery is behind the Paramount Studios, surrounded by many businesses, and is easy to miss for first-time travelers. Her brother, J. Vivian Wray, suffered from a mental disorder and was confined to a sanitarium. He escaped and apparently committed suicide by throwing himself in front of a streetcar in Stockton, California, on June 4, 1928. She spent time with and became friends with Peter Jackson, a major fan, while he was in the process of developing his remake of 'King Kong'. Before she passed on, Wray also met and became friendly with Naomi Watts, whom she also approved to play the part that Wray originated, 'Ann Darrow'. Pictured on one of four 51¢ Canadian commemorative postage stamps honoring "Canadians in Hollywood" issued 22 May 2006. Others honored in this set are John Candy, Lorne Greene, and Mary Pickford. Described Kong as her "little man". Sideline: playwright ("Angela Is Twenty-Two" and "The Meadowlark"). Gothic metal band Type O Negative wrote a song about her called, Fay Wray Come Out and Play.
