Scott O'Brien Discusses Kay Francis at Silver Screen Audio

Kay Francis, I Can't Wait To Be Forgotten by Scott O'BrienAt Silver Screen Audio, Scott O'Brien discusses his book, Kay Francis, I Can't Wait To Be Forgotten.

Following a relatively brief stint in the early 1930s at Paramount, where she co-starred with Herbert Marshall and Miriam Hopkins in Ernst Lubitsch's 1932 classic comedy Trouble in Paradise, Kay Francis became one of the top Warner Bros. stars of the decade.

Though - if remembered at all - better known for the outlandish clothes she wore in her movies than for her acting abilities, Francis could be highly effective in the right part - and under the guiding hand of the right director. In two 1932 WB releases in which she co-starred with William Powell, William Dieterle's Lubitschian comedy Jewel Robbery and Tay Garnett's romantic melodrama One Way Passage, Francis exudes just the right touch of both pathos and charm. Both films are sporadically shown on Turner Classic Movies.

The audio interview lasts 34 minutes.
