Jessie Ralph, The Good Earth, 1936.    Among those in the mix for Cuckoo from Pearl S Buck’s best-seller were Marjorie Gateson, Blanche Yurka and   Ottiano (from Venice) (er, Italy),  This was the only film with a credit for MGM’s in-house genius, Irving Thalberg - after his shock death at 36.   His boss, LB Mayer, had told him: “The public won’t buy pictures about American farmers, and you want to give them Chinese farmers?”   Thalberg, as usual, was right - three Oscars from six nominations!
