This Day in Ann Dvorak History: Begins Production on “College Coach”
Year of Ann Dvorak: Day 249
When Ann Dvorak returned from her extended honeymoon abroad in March of 1933, she made amends with Warner Bros., signed a new contract with them, and was ready to get in front of the cameras again. Instead, she waited…and waited.
Towards the end of the summer, the studio loaned Ann out to Paramount forÂ The Way to Love, co-starring Maurice Chevalier. Then, they let her wait a while longer. Finally, they cast her as the leading lady inÂ College Coach opposite Pat O’Brien and Lyle Talbot. Ann began production on September 6, 1933, and while the role was small and uneventful, at least she was working again.
