There was a widely held belief that young man in a wig and period costume appearing in a scene with Kay Francis in "I Found Stella Parish" was a young Errol Flynn. As reported by Rudy Behlmer in the March 1970 issue of "Films in Review" the writer and his collaborators, Clifford McCarthy and Tony Thomas concluded that the Flynn lookalike is actually Ralph Bushman (a.k.a. Francis X. Bushman Jr.) See more »
Considering Mervyn Leroy directed this film, it has to rank as a disappointment. Kay Francis sleepwalks her way through a ridiculous plot about an actress whose career is threatened by blackmail. Casey Robinson's hastily written screenplay was probably an afterthought while he worked on Captain Blood, but there's no excuse for a film set (partly) in Britain to include constant references to people's 'apartments' and feature cars with left hand drives! Ludicrous Cockney accents we can overlook, but these details distracted me throughout the film. Everything about Stella Parish looks like a rush job, and Ms. Francis seems particularly anxious to call it a day. Not a complete disaster, but edging close to it.
