Lizabeth Scott was the New Lauren Bacall – she film noired and one of her final roles was the Sleazy PR agent in Loving You.

Around this time, the rumours of her being a lesbian were printed and she was not successful in suing – and her career was ruined.

that she actually was a lesbian wouldn’t have helped her win

She and Wendell Corey, the married, divorced, remarried professional couple in Loving You – were in an earlier movie. Wendell was the hero with an older curmudgeon man and Lizabeth was the interloping woman in the western archetype.

    Jan Elvis Amundsen Who cares. She was a bad actor, but rest in peace. and who cares if she was a lesbian. Wrong time!

    Nina K Tryggvason Jan clearly I care about the information that I am sharing. your response is in extremely poor taste and is very disappointing.

    Invisibility is part of the problem and if Elvis taught us anything – it is to treat each other as equals.

    so how about you stop being bothered by that other people exist?

    and you are free to ignore any post that doesn’t interest you.

    When ELVIS Singing Gay Acting Joke From Charlie Hodge

    Jan Elvis Amundsen Nina, I think you misunderstood me a little. I meant no disrespect to her. I men at that time nobody liked gay people. Men or woman. In Norway you were a criminal if you came out. Talking about the 50-s. But it’ true that I didn’t like her too well as an actor. Sorry, I did NOT meant ANY disrespect. Please forgive me!

    Nina K Tryggvason Yes. Okay. I accept your apology and explanation of context.

    This is why, it is important to have these discussion now – in the context of what is going on iin Canada and the USA today – and in many nations around the world where – today – being gay is an executable offense – it is sickeningly still relevant.
