March 22, 1946: Metro shelves “Frankie From Frisco” because the subject matter is too tough to lick, Hedda Hopper says. Based on a James M. Cain story with a screenplay by Robert D. Andrews, "Frankie From Frisco" was set in 1865 and dealt with building railroads. It was to star Lana Turner, The Times said. The story does not appear to be in Cain’s papers at the Library of Congress.

Note: Shirley Molohon has exactly one credit on imdb.
