By vp19 on Aug 24, 2013 From Carole & Co.

When "To Be Or Not To Be" was filming in the fall of 1941, it was yet another Ernst Lubitsch romantic comedy, albeit one with more bite. But Pearl Harbor brought World War II home to ...

Tuesday Weld Quotes:

[on sex]
Sue Ann Stepanek: You know, when grown-ups do it, it's kind of dirty. That's because there's no one to punish them.

Barbara Ann: Everybody has got to love me. Everybody. This is my year. My horoscope says I am going to be famous. I am a Capricorn and I can't miss. I deserve it, too. I've been good. I haven't done bad things with boys. Well, a little. But not really bad. And only if I liked a boy.

Tuesday Weld Facts
She was director Roman Polanski's first choice for the title role in Rosemary's Baby (1968) because he thought her pure, American looks would contrast well with the film's dark undertones. The studio preferred Mia Farrow, however, who had become a star on the enormously popular night-time soap opera "Peyton Place" (1964). A few years later, Polanski wanted her to star in his film version of Macbeth (1971). She lost the part when she refused to do a nude sleepwalking scene. The role was eventually played by Francesca Annis.

Donald Fagen mentions her in his song "New Frontier" on the album "The Nightfly": "Introduce me to that big blonde/She's got a touch of Tuesday Weld."

1958 Deb Star.
