Joan Blondell, as Flips Montague, had at least eight wardrobe changes during production.
She first appeared in a Majestic Studios office wearing a silky, light-colored blouse with black slacks. In her next scene, while convincing production assistant Chuck Collins to find a background role for Merton Gill, she wore a full-length skirt with a striped shirt and cap. Next, likely for a screen role, she appeared in western apparel consisting of a riding outfit with a checkerboard vest and knee-high boots. In the next scene, with Merton in the restaurant, she wore a plaid dress with a wide black belt and cap.
While attempting to convince Jeff Baird of Merton's abilities, she appeared in a dark dress with white collar, and matching gloves, cap and heels. During filming of Wide Open Spaces, the call sheet described her apparel as a riding habit. Following, she's off-camera for the final scene of Wide Open Spaces in a REPEAT WARDROBE that she wore in Jeff Baird's office - the dark dress with white collar, cap and added black handbag. Perhaps the two scenes were filmed in the same day.
In her apartment, the day of the Sneak Preview, she wore a dark pantsuit with a white-laced collar and matching short sleeves, and a dark headband. Finally, in one last apartment scene, she appeared in a floral-designed short-sleeved dress with a white collar, bow, and thin black belt.
Serves you right, you big lug!
The actor list on Majestic Studios' Call Sheet for Wide Open Spaces misspelled Bud Jamison's name as Bud Jamieson.
