Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I didn't think much of [the movie] Them! (1954) when I read the script. I just knew that [my character] was a scientist, and I was hoping that somewhere along the line there would be some romance or love interest. But [director] Gordon Douglas didn't want to refer to any kind of romance whatsoever. It was totally devoid of any interplay with anybody. The ants were supposed to be the star. See more »

Trivia:

In the book "Cars Of The Fabulous '50's" in the 1953 Packard section, on page 169, there appears an ad for a contest to "Give Joan Weldon, young Hollywood starlet a new name." The winner was given a choice of a new 1953 Packard Caribbean convertible and a trip to Hollywood, or $7500 cash". See more »
