Gordon Oliver


  1. Henry Fonda, Jezebel, 1937.  The black-and-white Gone with the Wind!… Dean Jagger, John King, Gordon Oliver (a future producer of eight series, including Peter Gunn) and Robert Whitney were in the mix for Fonda’s stuffy banker fiancée of troublesome Southern belle Bette Davis.. Or…
  2. George Brent, Jezebel, 1937.  …for  Bette’s ex, George Brent as  Southern gent, Buck Cantrell,  in the seventh of his eleven  films with Davis.  After So Big!, The Rich Ae Always With Us, Housewife, Front Page Woman, Special Agent, The Golden Arrow and before Dark Victory, The Old Maid, The Great Lie and This Is  Our Life. They also found time for a two-year affair. Not her first with a co-star. Even if (or because?) they were  other star’s’ (indeed, bitter enemies’)  husbands or lovers.  Jezebel was released on  March 26, 1938 – the day I was born.

  3. Frank Albertson, It’s a Wonderful Life, 1946.
