|JOAN & STEPHEN BOYD AT PREMIERE|
Joan at this time was beginning to become disillusioned at the roles Fox were giving her, just as she had with Rank.She had read a script she loved called "Oh! Men! Oh! Women!".. she begged Zanuck for the part, but to no avail, maybe he had other things in mind! The film was made and starred Ginger Rogers, Dan Dailey and David Niven, while the role she wanted was filled by Barbara Rush. Joan also lobbied for Fox to make a film of a play she had just done in England, which she loved called "The Skin Of Our Teeth". But again her lobbying fell on deaf ears and she was disappointed. But she was winning all kinds of trivial awards including..
" The Most Promising Actress" "Favourite Newcomer" "The Face Of The Year"
Many of the cast had worked with Joan in her other films... Basil Sydney and Ronald Squire had appeared in "Sea Wife", Patricia Owens had an uncredited part in "The Good Die Young", Joan Fontaine had starred in "Decameron Nights" while Stephen Boyd was to star in "The Bravados"..Even the film's assistant director Gerry O'Hara would go on to direct Joan in her 70's hit "The Bitch"..
