Marianne Koch

  1. Dorothy Malone, Night Passage, 1956.   Malone walked away from being James Stewart’s ex-lover when she was refused  “preferred billing.” Actually, the German import, Marianne Koch (billed as Cook), should have been Audie Murphy’s gal in her third Hollywood gig but proved pregnant. Stewart then beat Foster to the punch. Eight years later, back in Europe, Cook won a far better Western.  A Fistful of Dollars.
