Barbara Parsons

  1. Susan Peters, Song of Russia, 1943.    The Hollywood Reporter stated that Garbo was a “cinch” for Nadya.  The fact that Pearson, Peters, Kathryn Grayson, Signe Hasso, Hedy Lamarr, Barbara Pearson and Donna Reed were also seen,  underlined  the relative unimportance of the role in  the over-egged  slice of (WW11) Soviet propaganda. Eight years later, Hollywood was accusing everyone and his wife of being Reds!  Headliner Robert Taylor (in  his last film before going to WWII in the US Navy) called the film: “Distastefully Communistic.”
