Lee Patrick (1906-1982)


  1. Katharine Hepburn, Stage Door, 1937.     It made sense to sign a contract with RKO in 1937 as the studio had the rights to her Broadway triumph. Except…
  2. Ginger Rogers, Stage Door, 1937.    … Except RKO divided the role intwo - and rejected Lee for both of them.
  3. Barbara Stanwyck, Stella Dallas, 1937.     A favourite for the title role that won Barbara an Oscar nomination.   And so Lee disappeared into B-movies mainly because she was written off by Louella Parsons  - displeased with a profile penned by Lee’s journo  husband Tom Wood,
  4. Gladys George, The Roaring Twenties, 1938.     Nothing had changed that much  at Warner since James Cagney had been away fighting for better scripts and money…  Gladys George replaced Ann Sheridan who had replaced Patrick who had replaced Glenda Farrell.  Oh, and Raoul  Walsh replaced Anatole Litvak as director.
  5. Ann Sothern, Brother Orchid, 1939.      Studio boss Jack Warner wanted Lee.  Associate producer Mark Hellinger "fought bitterly"  for Ann.  Just another of their everyday feuds, which led to Mark telling the boss: "Keep using your other producers as messenger boys and involuntary ass-kissers...  but credit me with just a little more manhood and  honesty."  
  6. Gladys George, The Maltese Falcon, 1940.   When Eve Arden  proved unavailable for Sam Spade’s secretary, Effie,  Patrick took up the shorthand pad  and passed the widow Iva Archer  to George.   In fact, she also played  Effie in  the hokey re-make, The Black Bird, 1975.
