Joan Evans

  1. Gloria Grahame, Oklahoma! 1954.  There are nearly always the same two roles in every Hollywood film.  The Girl.  And The Girl’s girlfriend. Betty Hutton stupidly scorned gentleman film-maker Fred Zinnemann and just the kind of role to relight her failing star. Also vying for Laurie’s pal, Ado Annie, were Joan Evans and… Mamie Van Doren!
