Ann Richards

  1. Susan Peters, Random Harvest, 1941.     First Richards, then Donna Reed were due to be the Kitty, but it was finally Peters who fell for Ronald Colman –  already committed to Greer Garson. Except, due to an accident, he can’t remember her. Sniff, sniff!
  2. Jennifer Jones,  Love Letters,   1944.       MGM’s blonde Australian was demoted to The Best Friend when producer David Selznick pulled strings for his Jones girl. (The New York Times critic Bosley Crowther called it sentimental twaddle). And “the new Greer Garson” ended her career in a 1960 nudist thriller from the ubiquitous Doris Wishman: Hideout in the Sun.
