Lizabeth Scott


Joe E. Brown once said, and I wish I knew where I heard or read it, that he got the "E" from Lizabeth Scott. Who threw it out on a train to Boston, going to replace Miriam Hopkins in a play. Who changed her name from, get this, Emma Matzo. Think about Lizabeth Scott and attach the name Matzo to it. It's hard, very hard. Anyway, she was gorgeous and sexy and throaty and a big threat to lots of A-list stars of the period. Her sexual orientation was an open secret. (Never married.) 
The Wiki entry on Scott's film career is thorough to a fault and mentions a dozen films I've never seen. And it has this great quote: When asked what was the best advice she was given, Scott replied, "I don't know, but I sure didn't take it." That sounds about right. I demand that TCM have a retrospective immediately. Lizabeth Scott was 92.
