King Kong actress dies.
Wray died yesterday at her Manhattan apartment, said Rick McKay, a friend and director of the last film she appeared in. There was no official cause of death.
'She just kind of drifted off quietly as if she was going to sleep,' said McKay, director of the documentary Broadway: The Golden Age. 'She just kind of gave out.' During a career that started in 1923, Wray appeared with such stars as Ronald Colman, Gary Cooper and Spencer Tracy, but she was destined to be linked with the rampaging Kong in movie fans' minds.
She wrote her autobiography in 1988, On the Other Hand
