("Clooney Rooney")

 

When Joan Crawford was married to Franchot Tone, she was "Joan Tone"

 

If Rhonda Fleming married Peter Fonda, she would be Rhonda Fonda

 

There are a lot more where those came from. Should we start a thread!? ie:

 

Jane Wyman/John Payne - Jane Payne

Bette Davis/John P. Getty - Bette Getty

Shelley Winters/Gene Kelly - Shelley Kelly

etc., etc. etc. .....

I'm confused. Did Raymond Chandler write that Alan Ladd was "after all, a small boy's idea of a tough guy"? Or did he write that Ladd was "after all, a tough boy's idea of a small guy"?

The Lodger in 1926 - it showed a man pacing the floor

and the people downstairs looked up and the ceiling'

became transparent to show him pacing...
