Cathy O'Donnell (1923-1970)

  1. Joan Evans, Roseanna McCoy, 1948.   Producer Samuel Goldwyn’s first plan for what the New York Times would call a feudin', fussin' and lovin'  version of the Wild West’s Hatfield-McCoy feud was Cathy and Farley Granger. (He recommended her). Then, Cathy wed the scenarist brother of  the great director William Wyler, who happened to be  Sam’s bête noir for leaving the Goldwyn company to set up his own. Further pissed-off by the wedding, Sam  punished the new Mrs Robert Wyler for the ”sin” of her brother-in-law  and promptly started one of Hollywood’s fabled “talent hunts” to find her replacement.  He fell for Joan, never realising  that her parents had upped her age from 14 to 16 to help make sure she got the title role   She then made two more Sam movies with Granger: Our Very Own, 1949, and Edge of Doom. (Jack Palance headed a TVersion of the Western wars in 1975; likewise Kevin Costner, in 2012). Never heard of 'em?  Of course not.  Willie Wyler didn’t direct them!  (Jack Palance headed a TVersion of the Western wars in 1975; likewise Kevin Costner, in 2012).
  2. Debra Paget, The Ten Commandments, 1954.
