"I was the last person cast," she recalled in a 2004 interview. "It wasn't until we were halfway through shooting 

that I realized the part had been offered to other actresses who didn't want to appear so horrible on the screen."

"One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Home" proceeded to turn into the principal movie in 1934′s "It Happened One Evening"
