Kit Smythe

  1. Tina Louise, Gilligan’s Island, TV, 1964-1967.     When Jayne Mansfield passed on being Ginger Grant -  as pin-uppy and adorable as Jayne was. -  the CBS suits went the other way,  with the softer Smythe as the secretary in the 1963 pilot. Then made her a movie star in the series - perfect for the curvaceous Louise. And she did it her way, arguing with producer Sherwood Schwartz, turning the harshly written sharp-tongued temptress into  a Marilyn type… in Myrna Loy gowns! Tina refused to appear in the Gilligantele-films because “the role had killed my career as a serious actress.”
