Mona Freeman (1926-2014)

  1. Jean Heather, Double Indemnity, 1943.   Cheers! A Hollywood debut at age 18, as Barbara Stanwyck’s step-daughter in a  Billy Wilder classic.  Then, tears!  She was dropped replaced for achieving what all Hollywood ladies craved - looking too young. Wilder gave her a compensatory bit as Edward G Robinson’s secretary. This was the first of nine movies. From Going My Way with Father Bing Crosby to Gene Autry’s Last Round Up!
  2. Angela Lansbury,  National Velvet, 1943.  Same again…  This time Freeman didn’t look old enough to be Elizabeth Taylor’s older sister.  (Enter: another Brit). In fact, Freeman was six years older than Taylor.
  3. Director Frank Capra was sorely disappointed by his 1934 film, Broadway Bill. He was right. It really did nol work because Warner Baxter (as the trainer of the titular race horse) was scared of horses! Which explains  why Capra  re-spun it  15 years later with Bing Crosby. His love interest was Coleen. And not Geraldine Brooks, Mona Freeman or Joan Leslie.
  4. Dana Wynter, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, 1956.  Dana had just an edge more to help make it... all together now...  the Wynter’s tale!
