  1. Gladys Cooper,  This Above All, 1941.     Ya can’t always get wot ya wanna…  Darryl F Zanuck had such tight control at Fox that Nigel Bruce was the only one of eight casting suggestions made by director Anatole Litvak that DFZ approved. Title stemmed from the Polonious soliloquy in Hamlet: “This above all: to thine own self be true…” As John Wayne could have told you; he could recite the entire play.
