Ole Olsen

  1. James Cagney, Boy Meets Girl, l938.     The Warner idea made sense. Olsen & Johnson, Broadway’s  Hellzapoppin‘ stars as songwriters making a star of Marion Davies. However, the lunatic duo was tied up on-stage and Marion refused the idea. A quick re-write made it the fifth Cagney-Pat O’Brien  movie – as screenwriters with Marie Wilson as the waitress with star potential. Ole and Chic made seven farces, including their classic  Hellzapoppin‘ in 1941.
