39 year old Rita Hayworth photographed in 1957 to promote Pal Joey.
“ Dean Martin became involved in Something’s Got to Give after Marilyn picked him; in some reports he had invested a personal stake in the production.
Dean gallantly stood up for his friend after she was dismissed by 20th Century Fox. The studio hired Lee Remick as Marilyn’s replacement, but Dean invoked a clause in his contract allowing him approval of his opposite number, and informed the studio that he would not work with anyone except Marilyn on this picture.
Fox sued Martin, Martin sued Fox, and then the picture was put back on track, to no small degree because of Dean’s intransigence and support for Marilyn. ”
