Robert Whitney (1910-2008)

  1. Henry Fonda, Jezebel, 1937.     In May 2015, Twilight star Anna Kendrick complained about Hollywood sexism: she could not be confirmed for a film, she said, until  after all the male roles were selected.  Vice-versa in ’37… when Bette Davis had the titular role (that’s why she lost Scarlett O’Hara)  and director William Wyler tested four guys to play both rivals for her heart (already won off-set by Wyler!). Whitney, Dean Jagger, John King and Gordon Oliver tested for Rhett, er, Preston Dillard…
  2. George Brent, Jezebel, 1937.  …and also for Dillard’s ill-fated opponent, Ashley… er, Buck Cantrel in   Warner’s $1.25m response to MGM’s Gone With The Wind . So now I know which Hollywood movie opened on March 26, 1938 - the day I was otherwise engaged. Being  born.
