  1. Cukor is saying, “Keep up the great work and you’re a shoo-in for the Oscar.”

    And she should have been.

  2. What a sad life poor Isabel Jewell had. When you think of the major films she appeared in. Lost Horizon, Gone With The Wind, Northwest Rangers , The Bishop’s Wife yet by 1957 she was charged with passing bad cheques in Las Vegas. I only discovered recently that her death was a suicide. She was a great talent with a tremendous gift for emotional or hysterical scenes. How about a tribute on the blog pls.

  3. To be honest there appear to be two different opinions regarding Isabel’s death so perhaps the suicide theory is questionable at best.
