Kenneth MacKenna (1899-1962)

  1. Charles Farrell, The Man Who Came Back, 1931.  Two of Katharine Hepburn's friends from her earliest New York - and indeed, Connecticut - stage days were promised the lead role. One was the gay MacKenna. The other,  Humphrey Bogart. MacKenna, who took the bisexual Hepburn's virginity - repeatedly - was among her three closest confidants (and gossips) - with actor Anderson Lawler and director George Cukor.
  2. Leslie Howard, Secrets, 1932. Mary Pickford’s last film began as a talkie re-make of Norma Talmadge's 1924 hit.  But  “America’s Sweetheart” stopped shooting about a third through in 1930 and burnt the footage because,  well, she blamed it on a drunk director (Marshall Neilan), but the trtuth was that,  at 31, MacKenna looked too young for her at 37. By the time she re-started it with Howard in 1933, MacKenna (the movies’ second Bulldog Drummond), had wed and divorced Kay Francis... and never made  another film for 27 years.
