Marion Burns

1. – Fay Wray, Shanghai Madness, 1933. Musical chairs at Fox for Spencer Tracy’s next co-star. First choice Claire Trevor was suddenly switched to a second consecutive George O’Brien vehicle. MGM loaned Elizabeth Allen, who simply walked out on the usually mild-mannered director John G Blystone. Enter (for just a few days) Burns, aka Joan Bennett’s two-timing sister in Me And My Gal. Finally, with less than a week’s notice, King Kong’s girlfriend became the wild girl called Wildeth.
