Steve Allen

  1. Van Johnson, Brigadoon, 1953.   Once the Broadway hit became another Gene Kelly MGMusical, the search began for his pal, Jeff. Losing their way in the Scottish Highlands, they find a town that comes back to life for a day once a century. (Yes, that silly!). Candidates included Wayne, Allen (just before changing TV forever) with  the Tonight show),  Bill Hayes and Donald O’Connor.
  2. Elliott Reid, Move Over, Darling, 1963.  A new shrink as the waste-not-want-not Fox rapidly revamps Marilyn’s unfinished Something’s Got To Give, 1962, into …  a  Doris Day comedy!
