What Do They Have in Common?

Recommended Posts

Correct Star that's close enough. The answer was Earthquakes.

 

Bette Davis- The Sisters

Lana Turner- Green Dolphin Street

Jeanette MacDonald- San Francisco

Ava Gardner- Earthquake ( starring Charlton Heston)

Myrna Loy- The Rains Came ( the earthquake came first and caused the monsoons)

 

Good work, your thread Star :)

In fact each character wrote a 'scandalous' book that created an uproar in their community

It's a given that they were all stars of their own shows, so it's something else I'm looking for. You're on the right track with the producers answer but it's more than that.

Not exactly but it's sorta close. They were all married to men they worked with on their shows, they didn't marry them while on the show they were married before their hit shows. and in Desi's case a jack of all trades (maybe not writer) Not just producers, the were writers, directors and they formed production companies together. Yes all divorced their spouses, one might make a link about how these mega successful women who worked so closely with their husbands on their hit shows ALL wound up getting divorced.

Thanks, Shutoo.  I'm glad that you included Lily Tomlin on your list of actors.  She and Bette Midler were hilarious in Big Business

 

 

I'm going to leave this thread open.
