Happy Birthday Virginia Bruce!

Virginia Bruce photographed in the mid-1930's.
Virginia Bruce was born on September 29th 1910 as Helen Virginia Briggs in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Virginia Bruce is a  lovely and often forgotten about leading and supporting actress during the 1930's-1940's.

 I'm reading a biography on her right now titled Virginia Bruce: Under My Skin by Scott O'Brien. I'm thoroughly enjoying it and have come to adore Miss Bruce. She was incredibly beautiful with her stunning eyes and delicate features. She also had loads of talent, but was never always given the best roles, but when she did, she shined. She was sort of quiet and sensitive and did not fight for better parts. I cannot wait to finish the book, as I'm over half way through!

Happy Birthday Fay Wray!

Fay Wray is probably most remembered for being the beauty to King Kong's beast in the 1933 version of King Kong. She worked in silent films and transitioned successfully into talking movies. Besides King Kong (1933), I have seen Miss Wray in The Most Dangerous Game (1932), Doctor X (1932), The Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933), and The Richest Girl in the World (1934). She's an actress that I have always wanted to watch more of!

You can see Fay Wray in "two-strip Technicolor" in The Mystery of the Wax Museum (1933) and Doctor X (1932)!
