Part Two of our Exclusive Interview with Victoria Riskin, author of “Fay Wray and Robert Riskin: A Hollywood Memoir”
Today we’re sharing Part Two of our Exclusive Interview with Victoria Riskin (daughter of Fay Wray and Robert Riskin) about her new book “Fay Wray and Robert Riskin: A Hollywood Memoir” which is available in stores now. I was thrilled to be able to sit down with her for a special chat about the book. That said, another Big Thank You to Victoria for spending lots of time with me, and to Pantheon Books for making this happen!
This is Part Two of an exclusive 2-part interview with Victoria, in which she talks about the significance of the piggyback scene in It Happened One Night, what drew her parents to each other, her father’s war efforts and propaganda films, her father’s ‘common man’ theme, special memories of her parents, and much more.
If you enjoyed this interview, please feel free to check out Part One of the interview in which Victoria talks about the origins of the book, her parent’s early years in Hollywood, the filming of King Kong, the exploits of Merian C. Cooper and her father’s partnership with Frank Capra.
Hope you enjoy the interview. I know I did
