2. Alan Ladd (Internet Movie Database). Throughout the 1940s his tough-guy roles packed audiences into theaters and he was one of the very few males whose cover photos sold movie magazines. In the 1950s he was performing in lucrative but unrewarding films (an exception being what many regard as his greatest role, Shane (1953)). By the end of the 1950s liquor and a string of so-so films had taken their toll. (Submitted on March 7, 2019, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)

In 1941 Olivia demanded better, more substantial roles than the "sweet young thing" slot into which Warners Brothers had been fitting her. The studio responded by placing her on a six-month suspension, all of the studios at the time operating under the policy that players were nothing more than property to do with as they saw fit. Irate, she sued the studio, and for the length of the court battle she didn't appear in a single film. The result, however, was worth it. In a landmark decision, the court said that all performers were to be limited to a seven-year contract that would include any suspensions handed down. This became known as the "de Havilland decision"; no longer could studios treat their performers as mere cattle. (Submitted on March 7, 2019, by Cosmos Mariner of Cape Canaveral, Florida.)
