Moroni Olsen

  1. Lionel Atwill, Johnny Apollo, 1939.      The casting suggestions of head Fox Darryl Zanuck were  not always followed – or possible. Either way, his Olsen was out and Atwill was wasted as the lawyer of Tyrone Power’s jailed father.  Zanuck got his way about Olsen for Power’s next film about the Mormon leader, Brigham Young. Olsen was the only actual real Mormon in  the cast.
  2. Samuel  S Hinds, It’s a Wonderful Life, 1946.
