Battle of the Sexes, . . . . Oh, What a Battle!

Joan Caulfield was Corliss Archer in the ‘Kiss and Tell’ hit Broadway play when she was twenty-one years old. Hollywood wanted the young beauty, and off she went. Because of her beautiful legs, she was slated to appear in dance films, and when Bing Crosby asked her if she could dance in his next move, she boldly proclaimed that she could. Of course, she couldn’t, and even a crash course with a dance teacher did not help.

Joan was kicked off the film by Bing Crosby’s co-star and choreographer for the movie Paul Draper, who she couldn’t dance with to save her life. Then a strange thing happened. Before I go further, you need to know that Bing Crosby had just won the Best Actor Academy Award for his Father O’Malley part in “Going My Way.” He was also a major stockholder in Paramount Pictures. Suddenly, co-star Paul Draper was fired and replaced by Fred Astaire.

Then Joan Caulfield was re-hired to star in this movie, and would co-star with Bing Crosby in a couple more features. Later, Bing Crosby’s son Gary would write a story about some of Bing’s friends reminiscing about the star. They told one anecdote after another, but one story stood out. It seems that Bing Crosby and Joan Caulfied were leaving a house together as the sun was rising, and a passer-by on his way to work spotted them, recognized them, and in shock blurted out, “Father O’Malley?”

In this comedy about romance, Joan Caulfield plays the part of a best-selling author who wrote a book about why all women should hate men. David Niven plays the part of a photographer for Life Magazine. In real life, Joan Caulfield was a fashion model before becoming an actor, and she was the cover girl for Life Magazine on May 11, 1942. In fact, that magazine cover is what led a Broadway producer to invite her onto the stage, leading to her Hollywood movie career. Pop a big bowl of white kernel popcorn with plenty of warm melted butter drizzled over it and enjoy the show.
