Victor Jory

  1. Donald Cook, Fury of the Jungle, 1933.   Musical chairs at Columbia…   Cook  and Helen Twelvetrees were The Couple – Lucky and Joan- when shooting began. Then, Cook was cooked, replaced by Victor Jory, despite the fact that he was already shooting My Woman. Then, Jory and Twelvetrees were let go – and became The Couple in My Woman (John and Connie). Then, she returned as to the Jungle until dropped again – in favour of Peggy Shannon. So then – but you’re ahead of me, right?  – Jory was no longer Lucky, as Cook returned to where he was when all this started.

  2. Lionel Barrymore, It’s A Wonderful Life,   1946.

  3. Edward G Robinson, The Ten Commandments, 1954.
