Did You Know?
Following his first wife Dixie's death in 1952, Bing Crosby dated numerous Hollywood starlets, invariably young enough to be his daughters. Texas Beauty Pageant Queen Kathryn Grandstaff, born in 1933, became Bing's second wife In October, 1957. Kathryn Grant, her new actress name, after she was introduced into the Hollywood film industry, via the Beauty Pageant circuit, winning a "Beauty Queen" title; winning a pageant reward policy, a publicity tour-package which included, visiting the Hollywood Film Studios. First meeting Bing Crosby, while he was filming his interior scenes for the movie "Little Boy Lost" in February, 1953; after visiting a Gower Gulch's Paramount Pictures Studio sound stage, Kathryn Grant became one of Bing's younger date pool harem starlets. Kathryn was thirty (30) years younger than 52 year old Bing Crosby and not a Catholic, although she would eventually convert. Bing first proposed to her in November 1954. Bing told her that he expected to live only another ten (10) years. She accepted anyway, after which she did not hear from Bing again for nearly two months. In December Kathryn phoned Bing and Bing suggested they get married February 7, 1955. Bing postponed the wedding after an attack of kidney stones required surgery. The wedding was rescheduled for May 13th. Bing didn't show on that day either, but phoned on the 14th to cite film work and business dealings as the need to postpone the wedding until September 10th. On September 7th, Bing announced that a "complication" in his life necessitated postponing the marriage again. This "complication" may have included an unrequited affair with Grace Kelly, while filming the MGM romance-comedy "High Society." Grace Kelly, whose interest in Bing was shifting to Prince Rainier of Monaco. The Prince was twenty (20) years Bing's junior and just as wealthy. Rainier and the future princess met in May, 1955, and announced their engagement the following December. Bing and Kathy next set their wedding date for March 17, 1956. Bing again postponed the event to have eye surgery. The wedding was rescheduled for September, but Bing once again backed away. Part of Bing's reluctance to marry Kathryn may have been that his mother did not approve of the marriage. During the next few months Kathryn matched Bing's cold feet with her cold shoulders. In the meantime Bing had an affair with 23-year-old Inger Stevens, his co-star in "Man on Fire," apparently leading her to believe he would marry her. In July 1957 Kathryn left for Spain to film "The Seventh Voyage of Sinbad." They agreed not to speak until she returned in September. When she returned to Hollywood, Kathryn wrote to Bing that she still loved him but no longer wished to marry him. Bing wrote her in October that he was miserable without her and begged to see her. Kathryn demurred. On October 22 Kathryn received one more letter from Bing, begging her to marry him and including his phone number for response. Through her aunt, Kathryn arranged to marry Bing in Las Vegas, Nevada. At last Kathryn's ordeal was over. Bing and Kathryn said their vows on October 24, 1957. See more
When the Sheriff and Purcell Avery go to the doctor's to question Mr Sieverts, the office door is locked. The doctor unlocks the door to let them in and then locks it again once they're inside. As they leave, the doctor pulls the door open - without unlocking it first. For that to happen, the door would have to be a prop that was never locked in the first place. See more
