Did You Know?
In 1936, RKO decided to loan me to Columbia to do a picture called Theodora Goes Wild
(1936), about a zany woman who writes a book that scandalizes the town. I tried every way to get out of doing it. My husband and I even sailed off to Europe. But when I came back, the studio was right there to meet me, script in hand. So I did it, and now I'm glad I did.
