more noir

Joan Evans came from a film family. her parents wrote the screenplay for the Bette Davis vehicle "The Star."  & her godmother was Joan Crawford. her own acting career was brief (1948-1961). she gave it all up for marriage & motherhood.  I was able to talk with her abt Elyria's Keefe Brasselle who was her romantic interest in "Skirts Ahoy." she sd he was a pro on set & a pleasant person off screen.

Marsha Hunt was back. her memory is amazing. & she remains a social activist. altho she's happy to talk abt movies I think she's even happier to be askd abt her work with the United Nations.

from the Donald Strachey films: director Ron Oliver & actor Nelson Wong
