…………..I have had Jerry Vermilye’s book on Jean Arthur since it was published in 2012. Its 150 pages covers all of Jean’s films and includes an 80 page biographical profile.
Re-reading it recently, I was surprised to read that on Talk of The Town , Jean received half the salary of her costars, Cary Grant and Ronald Colman. (The two male stars each received $100,000 and Jean was paid $50,000).
Considering all three stars received the same star billing and their roles were certainly equally in size, one wonders how Jean was prepared to accept this big discrepancy in salaries.
- ………..Out on 17th. November,2020, is the Mill Creek box set of 12 Rita Hayworth films on Blu-ray. “The Rita Hayworth Ultimate Collection has the following titles:
MUSIC IN MY HEART – YOU’LL NEVER GET RICH – TONIGHT AND EVERY NIGHT – DOWN TO EARTH – PAL JOEY – THEY CAME TO CORDURA – FIRE DOWN BELOW – LADY FROM SHANGHAI – THE LOVES OF CARMEN – SALOME – MISS SADIE THOMPSON – AFFAIR IN TRINIDAD.
Looks good value at £32 for 12 of Rita’s films. Gilda not included.
……….Odd poster for UNDERCURRENT. A link to the title , but Kate and Bob are really up to their necks !
Don’t think it did well at the box office.
………… It’s SINGIN’ IN THE RAIN, but I don’t recall Debbie Reynolds in that outfit!
And the title has become YOU SHOULD BE MY LUCKY STAR in Germany.
Re the Rita Hayworth Collection – I think that there is no “Gilda” as the rights to release that film on disc are with Criterion, who issued it on Blu-ray a few years ago.
That poster of “Singin’ In the Rain” is strange – Totally unlike Debbie, it reminds me more of Cyd Charisse!
Thanks for the info about Gilda.
It does look more like a Cyd Charisse pose! Don’t understand why they had to change the title.
