Trivia:

Periods of temperament and alcoholism caused Rambeau to take a hiatus in her career in the mid-20s, but she was given a second chance by friend Franklin Pangborn, who gave her a chance as guest star in revivals of "Merely Mary Ann" and "What a Woman Wants" at the Vine Street Playhouse in Hollywood.
