Cobina Wright (1921-2011)

  1. Lynn Bari, Sun Valley Serenade, 1940.      Wright, Linda Darnell and Carole Landis were up for the singer with Glenn Miller Orchestra, no less - in Sonja Henie’s favourite icecapade. It was known as Hitler’s favourite Hollywood movie alongside King Kong and Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
  2. Mary Beth Hughes, The Cowboy and the Blonde, 1940.   Taming of the Shrew as a  Western… Wright passed the shrew (a spoilt movie star) to Hughes.  George Montgomery was the rodeo star taking up film-making.
  3. Frances Farmer, Son of Fury: The Story of Benjamin Blake, 1941.     Isabel was a jinxed role in Tyrone Power’s  thud ’n’ blunder romp. Lupino was chosen, then pushed into Moontide, replaced by Maureen O'Hara, hit by appendicitis, subbed by Cobina Wright, struck down with strep throat.. and this was Farmer’s last film before being wrongfully declared mentally incompetent and committed to various asylums and mental hospitals for seven years.  She then tended the  very parents who had committed her and came back, with six roles, mainly on TV, during 1958-1959. She died  from throat cancer in 1970.  Jessica Lange played her tragic life in Frances, 1981.
