Elmer Gantry ... Richard Brooks ... Jean Simmons

All correct laffite.  Elmer Gantry, Jean Simmons and Richard Brooks. The scene on the stage when the timbers were falling and everything is on fire was terrifying for Jean Simmons. Arthur Kennedy had suggested to Richard Brooks that he ply Jean with gin and milk. She had 5 of those drinks and it worked, she finished the scene. Here's the interesting connection with Great Expectations  (btw) one of my fav films, the scene where Jean is with Pip walking on the stairs, Jean was holding a candle and her apron did catch on fire. Maybe Jean remembering that incident is part of her reluctance to do the scene in Elmer Gantry ( btw) on of my top 10 fav films. Great work laffite, now it's back to you :)

Thanks, Laffite.    That was a great clue.

These two Universal contractees met while making a movie together.  They later married. In this movie, she was the female lead, and he was the heavy.

Excuse me, but Terrence posed this question. It is his turn.  Posters have to wait their turn, Guess correctly and it's then your turn.  Please STOP making up your own rules on how these games are played.

According to the lead actress who was an Oscar winner ( for a different film) in this 1950's film that was a drama, her co-star was so nervous that some scenes had to be done 30 or 40 times. The actress did not complain. Years later the actor thanked her for being so nice to him and and told her he loved her for that. Film, actress and actor ???
