Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[In a 1986 interview] Several people had warned me that Richard Boleslawski, the director, was difficult and frightening. I did not find him that way at all. I thought he was a wonderful director - he got you in the mood. See more »

Trivia:

Drake asked for her release from her three-year Paramount contract in 1936, six weeks early. Studio boss William LeBaron granted her request and even continued to pay her for that time. Unfortunately, she was very unhappy at her new studio Fox, and her agent Charles K. Feldman, arranged to have her contract bought by Columbia. See more »
