We will always remember Fay Wray in the clutches of King Kong, but the Canadian-born actress appeared in 120 films, opposite such figures as Gary Cooper and Clark Gable. Suave New Yorker Robert Riskin was Frank Capra's ace screenwriter, penning such films as It Happened One Night and Mr. Deeds Goes to Town. As their daughter Victoria Riskin recounts in this "refreshing" memoir (Booklist), the duo met in mid-career and succeeded at something considered nearly impossible: a happy Hollywood marriage.

"One of the great real-life Hollywood love stories; a warm, evocative, and deeply moving tale." —Kenneth Turan
