Indexer Notes

Script information by Lee Elias and Mike Feldman (Per Sandell ed.)
Mark Kable is based on Clark Gable, C.B. de Pille is based on C.B. de Mille, and L.B. Maher is based on Louis B. Mayer, all of MGM Studios. However, 1947's Forever Amber was made by 20th Century Fox (starring Linda Darnell). Fox conducted a search for the actress to portray Amber St. Clair modeled on MGM's search for the actress to portray Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With the Wind.

Indexer Notes

Last appearance.

It's very probable the character in this story, Senator Claxonhorn, was swiped from radio's Senator Claghorn, played by Kenny Delmar on the Fred Allen show (later used by Warner Brothers in their cartoon series, "Foghorn Leghorn"). He uses all the same verbage the radio Senator did, including "Ah'm from the South -- the South that is!".
