Dudley Digges

  1. Lee J Cobb, The Moon Is Down, 1942.       All the major studios fought for John Steinbeck’s praised/vilified novel/play about the Nazi occupation of Norway. (It was, in fact, superb propaganda for anti-Nazi resistance groups). Fox chief Darryl F Zanuck won because of how he made Steinbeck’s previous book, The Grapes of Wrath. (The then highest price of $300,000 helped, too). The Irish Digges had been first choice for Dr Albert Winter.
