3 Loves Has Nancy

I ran into a quick promotional preview recently for upcoming MGM films (1937-1938 timeframe). Check out the early cast for Three Loves Has Nancy:

One of those casting decisions that makes you go "hmmm." I don't think Margaret could have pulled off "folksy," IMHO she was too polished for that. Melvyn Douglas - too serious too? Of course, the real cast turned out to be Bob, Janet Gaynor, and Franchot Tone.

Maybe the studio heads felt the same way about Melvyn and Margaret, heh :D

Casting will be casting! Janet Gaynor is growing on me.
