Sounds like Carole Lombard.  Early in her career, she was a Mack Sennett bathing beauty.  Later she was nominated for an Oscar for My Man Godfrey and she worked with Alfred Hitchcock when she made Mr. and Mrs. Smith.  Although most people remember her for her screwball comedies, I think my favorite film of hers in In Name Only

 Congratulations Star, you're the proud owner of the next turn!

Initially, the studio's censors objected to a script that this star had written and demanded many changes.  The director of the film suggested to the star that they just go on ahead and film it the way it was written and nobody would even notice - and nobody did!

Name the movie, the star and the director.

Thank you Lav.

This film was in the midst of filming on-location on a Caribbean island.  A Hurricane struck, endangering cast  and crew, and the set losing contact with the outside world for a few days.

Name the film, the male and female stars, and, for bonus points, the island.

This was the female star’s second film outside her home studio in a revised non-exclusive contract with the studio.  She chose the leading man with a kissing scene; the director concurred when the young actor removed his shirt.  He had only had a bit part before.  Although his acting was uneven, within a couple of years, he became a popular matinee idol.

Arturo, is this correct?

Starliteyes, I am so sorry.

Yes ISLAND OF DESIRE is correct.  This 1952 British production was released there by the book’s title, SATURDAY ISLAND.  Linda Darnell starred with Tab Hunter, in his first major role; this started him on his way as a star.  Donald Gray, who had lost an arm in WW2, played the third part of the triangle.

The film was being shot in 1951 in Jamaica, when a hurricane hit.  There was no communication with the outside world, which engendered press interest.  However the main damage was on the other side of the island.

Great job, and it’s your turn.

This movie had 4 stars, but the studio where the movie was being made only had 3 star dressing rooms available.  One of the female stars got put into a small, drab cubicle.  Upon learning about this, one of the male stars paid to have the room redecorated and also had new wallpaper put in so that it was ready for her before she had to report to work.

Name the movie, the two stars in question, as well as the other two stars.

White Christmas? Danny and Vera-Ellen appeared in The Kid From Brooklyn and Wonder Man together. In White Christmas the end up together, not in the other 2 movies. Bing Crosby and Rosemary Clooney recorded albums together and radio and tv together. White Christmas was a big money maker. For those reasons I'm guessing White Christmas.  I don't know about the dressing room, either Bing did it for Rosemary or Vera-Ellen or Danny did it for Vera-Ellen or Rosemary ???????????? (my gut feeling is Bing did it for Rosemary, but I really don't know)
