Myrna Fahey

  1. Elana Eden, The Story of Ruth, 1959.   Director Henry Koster and producer Samuel  G Engel saw (allegedly) 300 actressess for The Bible’s Ruth, testing just 29… including Fahey (Madeline Usher in Roger Corman’s Fall of the House of Usher), Diane Baker, Ulla Jacobsson (Ingmar Bergman’s Swedish discovery), Susan Kohner, Tina Louise and Millie Perkins. But Engel bowed to studio pressure about the Israeli Eden (ex-Cooper), one of George Stevens’ final five possibilities for The Diary of Anne Frank, 1958, won by… Perkins.
