Did You Know?


Joan Crawford specifically asked for Margaret Sullavan to play the role of Judy, despite Louis B. Mayer's warning that the accomplished stage actress could steal the picture from her. Joan replied "I'd rather be a supporting player in a good picture than the star of a bad one."


Benny Collins: If I ever get a decent horn, I'll have a band of my own in a year.
