Tyrone Power and Linda Darnell on the set of Day-Time Wife (1939)

Linda (at the age of sixteen) was so nervous about doing her first starring role that she would giggle a lot and forget her lines. Tyrone would cover for her by asking the director for another take when he saw that she had blown something so that the blame would not be placed on her.

 Linda’s whole family came on set to visit and were introduced to Tyrone, and apparently her mother said that she didn’t wash her hand for a week after Tyrone had shaken it.
