Annabella (Suzanne Georgette Charpentier 1907-1996)

  1. Carole Landis, A Gentleman At Heart, 1941.   The treatment written for Don Ameche (asa Runyonesque bookmaker) had him opposite Annabella - or Simone Simon. Next draft? Annabella’s ex-husband, Tyrone Power and Loretta Young. Finally, Romero had Landis.
  2. Ingrid Bergman, For Whom The Bell Tolls, 1943.   Mrs Tyrone Power  was among the dozen possibilities (Frances Farmer, Vivien Leigh included)  until up showed...  The Swede.
  3. Celeste Holm, Come To The Stable, 1948.   The story (by future US ambassador to Italy, Clare Booth Luce) was about nuns. Hence, head Fox Darryl F Zanuck’s memo: “If the Church does not object, Annabella would be sensational as Sister Scolastica.” Maybe so, but Holm won it. And the support Oscar nomination.
