John Vivyan

1. – Cary Grant, Operation Petticoat, 1959. It was Tony Curtis’ show and he wanted Cary as his submarine commander. Universal wanted anyone else – to  avoid losing profits to Grant’s 10%. (The studio lost a bundle as this  proved to be  Cary’s all-time  #1 box-office winner).  Among Hollywood’s younger smoothies, Vivyan was TV gambler Mr Lucky, 1959-60, unofficially based upon Grant’s 1943 movie hero.
