Yes. that was the 1936 version from Universal Studios. That number was not included in the MGM remake in 1951. As hard as it might be to imagine Irene Dunne in blackface in a minstrel show, it would be even harder to imagine Katherine Grayson doing it. Well, you're hot today, mudskipper. It's your turn again.

During the shooting of this film, an actor asked the director, "What is my motivation in this scene?" The director responded, "Your motivation is your salary". Film?

Not RED RIVER. This film was the only time a famous actor worked with a famous director. They did not get along well, and the results showed. This was one of the famous director's more poorly received films.

It has to be Torn Curtain (1966) which is arguably Hitch's very worst (although his worst is still a lot better than a lot of directors best) It had two huge stars in the film Paul Newman and Julie Andrews.

...Holding Sixes' place until he gets back:

Late 1960s. A woman writer, with a string of successful sex novels behind her has decided to stop writing. Publishers send a male writer to France to finish her last book. Sidline: He smuggles the workings for some Swiss watches _into_ France. There's a homicide. Police _and_ Badguys trying to track them down.

Another writer, previously sent on the book project, is a women, a stunning redhead. Seems that, when younger, she mastered martial arts to be able to defend aganist men. Then she found out she _likes_ men. But she is helpful when those interested in the smuggling project catch up with them. Tall and leggy, she is hilarious in the way she daintily lifts the hem of her miniskirt to deliver a high kick to a Badguy's chin.
