"Saw the David Nivens in New York when they stopped off for a few days while en route from Europe to the west coast. (…) I asked David about Deborah Kerr who’ll be in ‘Separate Tables’ with him. ‘" Don’t do that,“‘he said " Every time her name is name is mentioned the person asking about her goes into ecstasies and forgets all about me"’ -Hedda Hopper Column 1957

David Niven and Deborah Kerr were great friends. They really got to know each other when filming ‘Bonjour Tristesse’ in the south of France in 1956. Deborah later said, they were like two school kids, giggling and gagging between the takes. They cared a lot for each other and were really good friends until Niven’s death in 1979. This quote shows that Niven appreciated Deborah’s character a lot and shows also his funny side - the one Deborah loved the most about him.

Myrna Loy + nose scrunch

At the beginning of her career Myrna Loy´s turned-up nose was not as famous yet, rather infamous. She had a little bone on the side of her nose, which cast a shadow in certain lights. This drove the cameramen crazy "because they never knew when it would appear. They’d see the rushes, groan, ‘There’s that thing again,’ and have to retake the scene. It looked like a tiny smudge on my nose. I mean you could hardly see it, but that’s how far the mania for perfection went." So she was often called in for retakes and since those are rather expensive she was once called in by the makeup department who announced that they maybe would fix her nose. "I was horrified. I used to be known as ‘The Nose’ for goodness’ sake—thousands of women went to plastic surgeons to have it duplicated.  I said, ‘Never! Nobody’s touching this nose!’ and got out of there fast.” And she was right. She had the most famous and sought-after nose of the 1930s and women would regularly go to plastic surgeons to get “a nose like Myrna Loy”.
