A Hollywood love story, a Hollywood memoir, and a dual Hollywood biography of the woman who stole the heart of King Kong and the man, Robert Riskin, one of the greatest screenwriters of all time, written by their daughter, Victoria Riskin, an acclaimed writer and producer.

King Kong elevated Fay Wray to the tip of the Empire State Building and the heights of cinematic immortality. She starred in more than one hundred and twenty pictures. Robert Riskin, Wray's husband, was one of Hollywood's seminal screenwriters, the originator of the "screwball comedy" and the true populist voice of the "little guy" that gave Frank Capra's movies the "Capra touch".
