Nina Koshetz

  1. Ann Codee, Mr Imperium, 1950.       Sudden change of Anna Pelan in the movie debut of the Metropolitan Opera bass Ezio Pinza, star of  Broadway’s South Pacific star. So bad, that MGM released his second film first. Strictly Dishonorable.  Didn’t help. Co-star Lana Turner felt he  got what he deserved. She didn’t get along with him and the crew resented his “lordly demands.” So,  four strikes and out for Pinza. Now you know why he never asked  to repreat  his Broadway triumph in the 1957 filmusical of  of South Pacific. While the Russian-born Koshetz won nine Hollywood movies.
