The queen of scream

The Fay Wray Fountain in Cardston, Alberta was built after a visit by Fay in 1962. Fay provided the money after being sent a check by festival organizers to cover her costs for attending. She mailed the check back, and the town built the fountain with the proceeds.

Fay lived on a ranch about 15 miles from Cardston. At the age of three, her family moved south to America, where her mother had been born.

This is obviously a publicity photo, but she certainly was cute.
