Pat Arno

  1. Elizabeth Taylor,National Velvet, 1944.    Arno was among the numerous  potential Velvet Browns.  Including Alix De Kauffman, Suzanna Foster, Leatrice Joy Gilbert, Katharine Hepburn, Leslie Ruth Howard, Patsy Lee Parsons, Gene Tierney. Oh, and Shirley Catlin… the  future UK politician Baroness Shirley Williams None matched Taylor’s determination. When told she was too short in her tested (directed by  Fred Zinnemann!), Liz promised to put on three inches before shooting. And she did!  A star is born, agreed the critics.   While Arno never made a movie.
