Rex Downing

  1. Robert Cummings, Kings Row, 1941.    Downing, Henry Fonda, Tyrone Power, Philip Reed, were also up for  Parris, studying medicine under the doctor in  “the town they talk of in whispers,”  full of murder, sadism, depravity.  And worse that had to be axed from Henry Bellamann’s 1940 novel: sex (premarital),  sex (gay), incest, suicide…  Peyton Place 16 years before Peyton Place! (Fonda and Power had played Frank and Jesse James in 1938).
