Estelle Taylor

  1. Gloria Foy, Dancing Lady, 1932.      MGM suits changed their collective mind about who should be Vivian Warner opposite Clark Gable, Joan  Crawford and, in his top hat and tails debut, Fred Astaire. It was also Foy’s debut – indeed, her first and last movie. Taylor  was  heavyweight boxing  champ Jack Dempsey’s wife during 1925-1930.
  2. Lily Damita, Frisco Kid, 1934.     One of Hollywood’s Most Beautiful was replaced by  by another. Or, if you prefer more background,  the ex-Mrs Jack Dempsey’s ex-wife was subbed by the future Mrs Errol Flynn. Opposite James Cagney in a ridiculous Gay 90s wavey hairdo.
