Them! and Joan Weldon


Recommended Posts

Noticed in June Now Playing that Joan Weldon is not listed among top three actors. The title credits for the movie and DVD cover lists her as number three behind James Whitmore and Edmund Gwenn, but before James Arness. Now Playing places Arness in number one slot.

Not unusual for TCM and others to pick up on the stars that later became more famous.

Interestingly Joan Weldon was featured in a contest ad for Armour Star products in 1953 asking contestants to give a new name to this Hollywood starlet. First prize was a 1953 Packard Caribbean and two week trip to Hollywood.

Don't know how the contest turned out, but she never changed her name.
