Betty Keane

  1. Joan Davis, Yokel Boy, 1942.     Republic splashed out on the Broadway hit, with Judy Canova and Buddy Ebsen – and then respun the whole thing. Not using either lead, their supports (like Lois January), nor even their characters! How Hollywood can you get?  Canova was replaced by another Broadsway star until Keane sprained her ankle and Davis took over.
