Did You Know?


Production of this movie was delayed because, according to her doctor, Loretta Young had suffered severe stress making two films back to back, The Call of the Wild (1935) and The Crusades (1935). The truth was that she had become pregnant with Clark Gable's child during The Call of the Wild (1935), and she asked her doctor to lie to the studio. She then took a trip, claimed she found a girl in an orphanage, fell in love with her and adopted her. The daughter, Judy Lewis went public with the information that she is the daughter of Loretta Young and Clark Gable in her 1994 book "Uncommon Knowledge". See more »

Ramona (1936)

** 1/2 (out of 4)

A young half Indian woman (Loretta Young) marries an Indian (Don Ameche) but their lives take a turn for the worse when white folks run them off their land. This is an extremely depressing and somewhat shocking film that actually shows the Indians as the good people and the white's as savages, which wasn't common back in the day. The two stars do their usual great work but the direction is all over the place. The Indians aren't well written considering most are talking with Spanish accents. John Carradine has a small role. From what I gathered, this was the forth feature to use 3-strip Technicolor.
