Budd Schulberg was also fired off the film with Fitzgerald. And it all started with two bottles of champagne that Budd's father, B.P. Schulberg, the former head of Paramount (1925-32), had given to Budd and Fitzgerald as a bon voyage gift at the train station in Los Angeles as they headed east to Dartmouth, Budd's Alma Mater. He did not know that Fitzgerald was a struggling alcoholic. See more »
I find Winter Carnival a most interesting film for many reasons, some of which have nothing whatever to do with the plot, as flimsy but sorta fun as it is. One wonders about whatever input, if any, was done by F. Scott Fitzgerald, and why did he choose to do a film about Darmouth's famed Winter Carnival. It is enjoyable to see what might well be some of the actual footage of the Carnival -- many years ago, it was shown live from the campus on TV. Then, too, it's nice watching Ann Sheridan relax through a clean, interesting role. It is also intriguing to search for Robert Walker in one of the few things he did before heading back to Manhattan to find better roles on the stage. And watching a very very young Joan Brodel is a charmer -- she is enchanting, funny, cute -- and, soon, would change her name to Joan Leslie to become a delightful comedienne and dancer and actress-of-depth, though still under-appreciated. See the film, and enjoy.
