Alice Faye (1915–98), under contract with 20th Century Fox for a little over ten years, was one of the highest paid actresses in the late 1940s. She was known for her sultry singing voice. After she realized that the studios would be promoting her costar Linda Darnell as the new “it” girl in her last film Fallen Girl (1945), even going as far as chopping some of Faye’s scenes, she abandoned the picture before filming was complete. Faye simply left a note, turned in her dressing room keys, and drove off the set.
