I was greeted as Miss Lamarr in dimly lit restaurants. Personally, I liked the idea of escaping from all that bland, blonde innocence and thought the whole thing was very funny, but I don’t think Hedy found the comparisons very amusing”

original caption: John Garfield, one of the screen’s most able portrayers of tough guys, much preferred to spend time in lighter activities, such as joining his daughter, Katharine, in song as she played her favorite tunes on the family piano (1944)

On Bing Crosby’s experience working with Carole Lombard on location at Catalina Island for We’re Not Dressing (1934):

Carole, bemused by Bing’s cool tact on the set of We’re Not Dressing, played off it between takes in a series of practical jokes. Bing enjoyed her dedicated swearing - “colorful epithets” he described as “good, clean, and lusty. Her swear words weren’t obscene. They were gusty and eloquent. They resounded, they bounced. They had honest zing!” With amazement, he described her dash to the ocean after inadvertently dousing herself with wintergreen: “She appeared practically unclothed,” he wrote. She occasionally enlivened the set by flashing him. While breakfasting at Catalina’s St. Catherine Hotel, where elderly regulars stared disapprovingly at the movieclan, she “came slinking in” and loudly cried, “Bing! Did I leave my nightie in your room last night?” For two days she sent Bing a one-word telegram every fifteen minutes or so: the word was NOW. “The fact that she could make us think of her as being a good guy rather than a sexy mamma is one of those unbelievable manifestations impossible to explain,” Bing wrote. “She was the least prudish person I’ve ever known.”
