Margot Grahame

  1. Ketti Gallian, Shall We Dance, 1936.      Change of Lady Tarrington in the second film with music by George and Ira Gershwin. For their pal and Broadway Fred Astaire – his seventh outing with her. Ginger Rogers.
  2. Binnie Barnes, Shadow of the Eagle, 1950.     Britain’s highest paid actress of the 30s, the voluptuous “British Harlow” – or “The Aluminum Blonde” – was Victor McLaglen’s unforgettable whore lover, Gypo Nolan, in The Informer, 1935. But in 1950, Columbia’s MJ Frankovich complained about her weight and replaced her as Russia’s Empress Catherine with… his wife!
