Jean Chatburn

  1. Myrna Loy,The Great Ziegfeld, 1935. Chatburn and Margaret Perry tested for the Broadway icon’s wife  – Billie Burke. (Chatburn, who began in movies as Barbara Stanwyck’s stand-in,  became Mary Lou, aka Sally Manners). Having sold the biopic rights, Burke had had been booked to play herself before Universal passed the overly expensive project to mighty MGM, where she made sure the  Broadway colossus  was seen in the finest light –  by cutting down on all his lovers! (PS: Among the Ziegfeld girls is Pat Ryan,  Richard Nixon’s future First Lady).
