English actress Flora Robson seemed an odd choice to play the mother of George Raft in 1939’s INVISIBLE STRIPES. George was actually 6 or 7 years older than Flora!
In THE WAY OUT ,Mona Freeman and Michael Goodliffe played brother and sister.Mona’s American accent is explained by the fact her character had been five years in America!
In GUILTY BYSTANDER, Mary Boland steps completely outside her usual bubbly, comedy character to play a Thelma Ritter type owner of a seedy, run down motel. Good for Mary!
Roland Young was invariably cast as a bumbling comic character. But in GIVE ME YOUR HEART, he is the writer friend of Kay Francis and helps her sort out her love life. Definitely not played for laughs and very good too.
Hard to imagine, but the urbane,sophisticated Reginald Gardiner played a cavalry commander in FURY AT FURNACE CREEK!
