Frances Dee Facts
Met future husband Joel McCrea on the set of The Silver Cord (1933). He had been smitten after seeing her in the movie An American Tragedy (1931) and requested that she be cast in his movie. During the filming, however, she was seeing off-screen co-star Eric Linden. Joel and Frances began dating after the movie was completed, after her romance with Linden was over. It was her relationship with McCrea that compelled her to sign with RKO.

She accepted the role in I Walked with a Zombie (1943) so that she could use her salary to purchase a new automobile for her mother.

Initially had a screen test for the role of "Scarlett O'Hara" and was actually George Cukor's first choice for the role of "Melanie" in Gone with the Wind (1939), but was deemed by David O. Selznick as being too similar in beauty to Vivien Leigh to play the role. Olivia de Havilland was then given the part.
