Fran Jeffries

  1. Sue Ane Langdon, When the Boys Meet the Girls,1965.  The new title for MGM’s second version of the Gershwin brothers’ 30s musical, Girl Crazy, made it sound like some Elvis rubbish. And both girls seen for Tess  had  made Presley pictures earlier that year. Fran was in Harum Scarum  (once double-billed with Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monster…!)  and  Sue Ann made Frankie and Johnny – but as Mitzi.  Fran was pulled out byh her MGM Records  chiefs  because of some required  off-key singing. More likely it was due to some of her potential  lyrics.   “You’ll have to be manhandled now and then, So, treat me rough, Twist my arm, If I ‘scream,’ It’s a false alarm, Just keep playin’ it tough, muscles, Keep on treatin’ me rough…” Amen.
