Dee Hartford


  1. Joan Collins, Land of the Pharaohs,1954.     Suddenly, it was Hollywood-on-the-Tiber… Even Howard Hawks got tbe sword ’n’ sandal bug (he was always short of money and anyway, he fancied building a pyramid).   Refusing any top stars, he first considered his third and final wife (1953-1960) to be his treacherous Nellifer.  (Owch!) Thankfully, said Jack Warner, Dee was pregnant with Gregg Hawks. The film was Hawks’ first major flop and The Silver Fox quit Hollywood and movies for four years – until coming back in great style with Rio Bravo, 1958.
