Susan Hayward has turned down, she says, $150,000, a chance to co-star with Errol Flynn and an Italy location for The Escape.

The fair lady’s reason: she would be required to cut her hair a la Bergman for For Whom the Bell Tolls. She refused to cut her hair for My Foolish Heart, which she’s now making. This gal’s haircuts come high.

Gorgeous, Talented, Courageous, Susan Hayward

    Where *do* you find this stuff, Tim? Apart from the obvious that no one could replace Olivia, and as much as I love Susan Hayward, I somehow can’t quite see her as Susan of Locksley and having reunions with the Merry Men of Sherwood. LOL Interesting idea to have paired her with Errol in whatever that movie would have been.

      Oh, her foolish heart, barb! She could’ve been making big news and big denaro living la dolce vita in Italy with Errol Flynn!…

        Lovely movie, but a tearjerker

    I would have cut my hair. Really?

      Selene – Would you have done it for 100 Grand? 125 Grand?
