They were great friends and the reigning queens of Paramount Pictures in the mid-late 1930's, even sharing their favorite leading man, Fred MacMurray. In true Hollywood fashion, though, Claudette campaigned vigorously to get a part that had been offered to Carole, Gerry Jeffers in "The Palm Beach Story". As we all know, Claudette got the part and became one of her signature roles. Paramount and Preston Sturges, the film's writer/director and great friend of Carole's, lobbied hard for her to get the role. Carole, in 1941, was on a semi-hiatus from her career so she could become a mother. When Paramount and Sturges couldn't budge Carole to take the role, Claudette came on board. As good as Claudette is, I do wonder how the film would've been with Carole as the star, with Joel McCrea.
