Virginia Weidler (1927-1968)

  1. June Allyson, Girl Crazy, 1943.      As the August 1939 plan of Fred Astaire and Eleanor Powell churned into the final MGM teaming of Rooney and Judy Garland., other choices were recast. Such as Allyson subbing Weidler… who had replaced Garland in the previous year’s Youngest Profession, Weidler retired at 15 after putting her Best Foot Forward, her 45th film in a dozen years – and the third she had won from Shirley Temple - including The Philadelphia Story and The Women.
  2. Ann Blyth, Mildred Pierce, 1944.      Bonita Granville, Ann Rutherford,  Shirley Temple and Martha Vickers also tested for Veda, spoilt brat daughter of the titular Joan Crawford’s classic film noir. This was Blyth’s finest hour - she should have won an Oscar like Crawford. For her next 42 roles Blyth simply played pretty and safe… no way to win Oscars..
