Sigrid Gurie (1911-1969)

  1. Joan Bennett, The Man in the Iron Mask, 1939.     Variety reported that Gurie and Frances Dee tested for the Dumas heroine, Maria Theresa, opposite the titular Louis Heyward - in a change of pace for Frankenstein  director James Whale. (Ironically,  his cast included the debut of Peter Cushing, Hammer’s Professor Frankenstein six times during 1956-1973).
  2. Linda Darnell, Blood and Sand, 1940.      Producer Sam Goldwyn’s  “Norwegian Garbo” tested for Carmen, ever-loving wife of Tyrone Power’s poor matador in the re-hash of Rudolph Valentino’s 1921 silent classic. Gurie casued a scandal later in the 40s, when the media discovered she was born not in Norway but… Brooklyn!
