Jane Wyatt (1910-2006)

  1. Maureen O’Sullivan, The Bishop Misbehaves, 1934.    Broadway’s main trio - Jane Wyatt, Alan Marshal and Walter Connolly as the bishop turned detective -  were examined by Hollywood. And made over as O’Sullivan, Norman Foster and, in his Hollywood debut, Edmund Gwenn. UK censors ordered a new title, The Bishop's Misadventures  “because bishops do not misbehave.” Of course not!

  2. Irene Dunne, Magnificent Obsession,  1935.       Dunno had Robert Taylor, Wyatt  was to have been obsessed with Douglas Fairbanks Jnr.

  3. June Lang, Nancy Steele Is Missing, 1936.       Exploiting the Lindbergh baby kidnapping in a convoluted manner, the drama had Nancy meeting her kidnapper 20 years later and believing him to be her father. (I did say convoluted!). Among the potential Nancies were: Wyatt, Frances Dee, Francis Farmer and Jean Parker.
  4. Ruth Warrick, Iron Major, 1943.    Wyatt tested for Florence Ayres Cavanaugh – wife of  Pat O'Brien’s Cav Cavanaugh, WWI hero and football coach.  In short: like a reprise of his  1940 Knute Rockne - All American, another fast-talker.  But then as  web critic  bkoganbing  pointed out: "The only time O’Brien slowed down was when he played priests."
