Trivia:

David O. Selznick saw her potential in Hitchcock's film "Young and Innocent" (1937) and avidly pushed for her to star in Hitchcock's next film "Rebecca." Hitchcock's impression she was too immature for the role and the sudden collapse of her studio, Gaumont British, combined to help her lose the part to Joan Fontaine. See more »
