  • (1937) Stage Play: You Never Know. Starring Clifton Webb, Lupe Velez, Libby Holman and Toby Wing. It opened at the Winter Garden on Sept. 21st and folded after 73 performances. This was a troubled production despite the stellar cast involved with serious conflicts between Libby Holman and Lupe Velez (who was cast as her maid). Play received mediocre reviews and star Clifton Webb flatly refused offer to take the show on the road after it closed, despite his long friendship with Ms. Holman. This marked co-star Toby Wing's only Broadway performance and she effectively retired after the show's run. Sadly (and ironically), both Holman and Velez would ultimately commit suicide).
