The resemblance of classic beauty

One of my brothers work at the local theatre, in the small community we live in. In this theatre, my brother has brought his own collections of movie props, and framed pictures of Hollywoodstars from different eras. When watching those pictures, there was one that caught my attention. I knew I’ve seen that person before, but couldn’t think of any particular movie. I took a closer look on that black and white photograph and a sudden flash appeared in front of my eyes. That female actor resemblance my first wife, nearly like an identical twin!


Yes, my first wife looks like Fay Wray, famous for the original King Kong movie from the 1930’s. I’ve heard of that movie, and seen it when I was a child, but never put any attention to the actors. But there is some differences, too. My wife have a little higher cheekbones than Wray, and she is much taller.

When I looked closer on that picture – just as I do when trying to see my wives through mirrors, windows and paintings – it became greenish and moved in wavy patterns. Suddenly, for a very short time, it looked like Wray gave me a “nod”.
Very fascinating, indeed!

    • Yeah. The female actors of the 30’s, 40’s and 50’s have something that the actresses of today is missing: Grace and, often, determination. The look of Wray, that resemblance the look of my first wife, have that kind of look.

      When I saw her in the mirror, she looked determined, gracefull and that she had made her choice of being with me. She appeared in poses, like stopmotion, where the last she did was kind of flying towards me, pointing at me inside the mirror. That was an intense and fascinating experience and I really don’t understand how some people becoma afraid and warns about experiences like this.
