First Love Shirley Temple, Peter Lawford, Arthur Treacher Desert Song Dennis Morgan, Francia White, Bruce Cabot Joy of Living Louise Allbritton, Robert Young Robert George Young (February 22, 1907 — July 21, 1998) was an American television, film, and radio actor, best known for his leading roles as Jim Anderson, the father character in Father Knows Best (NBC and then CBS), and the physician Marcus Welby in Marcus Welby, MD (ABC). Young appeared in over 100 films between 1931 and 1952. After appearing on stage, Young was signed with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and, in spite of having a “tier B” status, he co-starred with some of the studio’s most illustrious actresses, such as Margaret Sullavan, Norma Shearer, Joan Crawford, Helen Hayes, Luise Rainer, and Helen Twelvetrees. Yet, most of his assignments consisted of B movies, also known as “programmers”, which required two to three weeks of shooting (considered very brief shooting periods at the time). Actors who were relegated to such a hectic schedule appeared, as Young did, in some six to eight movies per year.

She and her elder sister Olivia de Havilland are two of the last surviving leading ladies from Hollywood of the 1930s. Fontaine is the only actress to have won an Academy Award for a performance in a film directed by Alfred Hitchcock, Suspicion. Fontaine made her stage debut in the West Coast production of Call It a Day in 1935 and was soon signed to an RKO contract. Her film debut was a small role in No More Ladies (1935) (in which she was billed as Joan Burfield).[4] Although Fontaine, on contract with RKO, had already made her screen appearance in No More Ladies, a series of other minor roles followed, in A Million to One (1937) and Quality Street (1937), opposite Katherine Hepburn. The studio considered her a rising star, and touted The Man Who Found Himself as her first starring role, placing a special screen introduction, billed as the “new RKO screen personality” after the end credit.[5]She next appeared in a major role alongside Fred Astaire in his first RKO film without Ginger Rogers: A Damsel in Distress (1937) but audiences were disappointed and the film flopped. She continued appearing in small parts in about a dozen films, including The Women (1939) but failed to make a strong

    Joan Fontaine did “Ivy” again on “SCREEN GUILD THEATER” in March 1952, using Harry Kronman’s script, and Stephen McNally as her co-star – with “canned applause”, as a live audience wasn’t in attendance during that version.
