I enjoyed checking out the Fay Wray and Erich Von Stroheim links.

Von Stroheim's life was more exotic than many movies.

When I asked Fay Wray about Eric as the "Man you love to hate," Fay said -"He was the man you loved to LOVE!"

In many ways, my journalism career became complete after interviewing her. All the interviews since have been gravy!
