Brenda Joyce (1917-2009)

  1. Linda Darnell,  Brigham Young, 1939.    Casting suggestions of head Fox Darryl Zanuck were not always followed - or possible. And so Darnell became Tyrone Power’s love interest, Zina. While Joyce went ojn to be  the second Jane in the Tarzan talkies, four with Johnny Weissmuller and one with Lex Barker. 
  2. Linda Darnell, Chad Hanna, 1940.  Of the quartet seen for Caroline - Bowdon, Darnell, Anne Baxter andf Brenda Joyce - only Bowdon was sure she’d won.  After all, her husband, Nunnally Johnson, had written the script! On hearing Darnell actually  won. Dorris said she considered leaving…  the Fox studio?  No, her husband.

  3. Dorothy Adams, Down to the Sea in Ships, 1948.   The only Jane to swing on the vine with two Tarzans, Johnny Weissmuller and Lex Barker, was booked.  Studying the seafaring script, she little room for women. And, indeed, most female roles were cut and/or uncredited. Unhappy with her career – and her five ape-man films – Joyce found it the perfect moment to quit movies (after 27 in ten years). “I was never enamored of Hollywood and films. The only good friend I had at 20th Century-Fox was Gene Tierney. Also, the Publicity Department people became good friends.” Thus she stole away and hid  in Washington DC and Santa Monica. Anonymously.
