You know I would imagine Marianna Hill was the kind of girl (my kind of girl:-) who didn't give a damn if anybody watched. Heck they are all going to see it on the screen anyway. But I bet Lee chose not to be there when that scene was shot. But I also bet he mentioned that scene to Clint IF the rumor is true that Clint saw the film and hired Hill off of that film. And with all due respect to Clint and he probably wouldn't do that as the big time director he is today at age 81, Clint hired her because of her COMPLETE nude scene and NOT because of her acting. Men operate like that sometimes you know!
But I feel better that you agree that Clint and Hill most likely had lots of time to sneak off and have fun and most likely DID. I mean Clint was chasing every good looking skirt he saw back then if the rumors are true and I think he has admitted he was that way and Hill was a woman who liked sex and new men adventures, so you put those two together and what do you get?
I remember hearing Bette Davis on the old Dumont Radio Network being interviewed in 1940 and she didn't hold any punches. She admitted that it is difficult for her to stay with one man long because she is always meeting something new and she gets bored with old news. I went "Oh my this lady gets around". I sent her a letter with a picture of me taken at the beach in Cony Island in 1934 and told her that "I'm new! How about inviting me out to Hollywood" but all I got in return was a glossy picture of her with what was clearly a "stamped" autograph. Bette probably never saw my letter:-(
BTW, Bette began to look a bit rough in her latter films didn't she.
I just got to wondering, if Marianna Hill had a score card like Mamie, Shelly and Yvonne. Hmmmmmm! And even IF you were in existance in 1934 Bob, the only thing Bette would have wanted to do is... more
I'm with Bette Davis in the 1930's, Teresa Wright (doesn't she look lovely in the last scene of "The Best Years Of Our Lives" in 1946) in the 1940's and Mamie Van Doren in the 1950's. That is what it ... more
I didn't exist during a good number of those years either I must admit. Just as you didn't exist in 1965 when Lee kicked the door down in that hotel room and suddenly sees the "TUB LADY". Kelly... more
Where is Doc Brown and his Delorian when you need him, huh? I just looked up "The best years of our lives" and I will absolutely check it out. I really love the 1940's, and enjoy WWII movies. It... more

I have it on DVD. I love it! My favorite characters are Homer and Wilma. This was such a bittersweet story line. But I do love the entire thing. Hoagy Carmichael is such a cool dude in this too. I... more
