Barbara Stanwyck and Burt Lancaster. SORRY,WRONG NUMBER.
Cary rightly distrusts that handshake!
Carole Lombard, Cary Grant, Kay Francis. IN NAME ONLY.
A pity it didn’t lead to better roles for Kay in the 40s. And a great shame Carole and Cary didn’t do a screwball together.
Joan Tetzel, Alan Ladd. HELL BELOW ZERO.
New Yorker, Joan Tetzel (1921-1977)was a stage actress whom David Selznick put into The Paradine Case where she was somewhat overshadowed by Alida Valli. ( Selznick wanted to rename Joan ,’Elizabeth Ives’.)
Joan only made a few films and I liked her in Hell Below Zero. I guess Selznick lost interest, or she decided to stick to the Theatre – she was in the original cast of I Remember Mama in 1944 but lost the film role to Barbara Bel Geddes.
Joan married Oscar Homolka in 1949 and they were together till her death in 1977 – they had lived in England since the early 60s and she appeared on the London stage.
Oscar Homolka died three months after his wife. He too was in the original I Remember Mama and was very good in the film version.
Randolph Scott, Anne Jeffreys, Robert Ryan. TRAIL STREET.
Not a great part for Robert Ryan, but he had Crossfire the same year.
Joel McCrea. THE GUNFIGHT AT DODGE CITY.
Preston Foster, Angela Lansbury, Judy Garland, John Hodiak. THE HARVEY GIRLS.
Janet Leigh, Jack Lemmon, Betty Garrett. MY SISTER EILEEN.
Clark Gable, Deborah Kerr, Sydney Greenstreet, Adolph Menjou, Ava Gardner. THE HUCKSTERS.
Edward G. Robinson, Loretta Young, Orson Welles. THE STRANGER.
Gilbert Roland, Barbara Stanwyck. THE FURIES.
