Book Photograph signed: "Fay Wray". B/w, 8x10¾ overall, image 6¼x9¼ (one surface). Pictured with actor Gary Cooper in a still from the 1928 film, The Legion of the Condemned. Captioned at lower margin: "Or do you prefer the strictly American team of Fay Wray and Gary Cooper? In 'The Legion of the Condemned,' Fay and Gary worked together so sympathetically that Paramount has decided to co-star them in a series of light romances of the younger generation." Wray portrayed Christine Charteris and Cooper was Gale Price in this film, William Wellman's follow-up to Wings. Wray and Cooper also appeared together in First Kiss (1928) and The Texan (1930). Although actress Fay Wray (1907-2004), born Vina Fay Wray in Canada, made more than 75 films, she is best remembered for her role as Ann Darrow in the 1933 classic, King Kong. Wray, "the beauty who killed the beast", started in films at the age of 12 in 1919 (Blind Husbands), and first found stardom in 1928 in The Wedding March. She continued making appearances in films through 1980, when she was featured in the made-for-TV movie, Gideon's Trumpet. Her other film credits include Thunderbolt (1929), Viva Villa (1934), Bulldog Jack (1935) and Tammy and the Bachelor (1957). Wray's autobiography, On the Other Hand, was published in 1989. Defects from original negative have reproduced on photograph. Blank edges are lightly soiled. Lower right margin slightly creased. Fine condition.
