Leatrice Joy

  1. Genevieve Tobin, Our Neighbors – The Carters, 1938.      According to Sheila Graham – and how could she be wrong! – tested for director Ralph Murphy as the family’s good friend, Gloria Hastings when the Carters – “Doc” Frank Craven and Fay Bainter – fall on hard times. But Tobin or not Tobin… that was the question at Paramount for Gloria Hastings. No contest. Tobin was six years younger. Joy started as a silent movie extra in 1917. She won almost a hundred screen roles, including several for tyrannical director CB DeMille.
