King Kong actress Fay Wray passed away on Sunday in her Manhattan apartment. She was 96. Wray gained worldwide fame in RKO's 1933 movie classic as the blond beauty who's carried up the side of New York City's Empire State Building by a giant ape. Fans at midnight screenings of another cult hit, The Rocky Horror Picture Show, will surely be heard humming the song lovingly dedicated to her by Tim Curry's Dr. Frank-N-Furter: "Whatever happened to Fay Wray? That delicate satin-draped frame... As it clung to her thigh, how I started to cry, 'cause I wanted to be dressed just the same..." By the way, the Empire State Building will dim its lights for 15 minutes tonight in honor of the screen icon.
