Producer David O. Selznick gave roles to a number of women that made them spectacular stars: Vivien Leigh and Olivia de Havilland in Gone With The Wind; Joan Fontaine in Rebecca; and Ingrid Bergman, who started her American career under his guidance, in Intermezzo. Such lesser but still very popular players as Guy Madison, Rhonda Fleming and Rory Calhoun also began with him. He wanted to make a young actress named Phyllis Isley, whom he renamed Jennifer Jones, his greatest success. As Pearl, the half-breed heroine of his wild and beautiful masterpiece Duel In The Sun, she was a marvelous overwrought minx, and the star he had hoped for: they were married. A neurotically self-obsessed, other worldly quality about her fitted her perfectly for Flaubert's Madame Bovary and King Vidor's Ruby Gentry, and opened a host of possibilities to her: as a candidate for sainthood in one film, a troubled ghost in another, a tormented bride in the third, and a string of sexually frustrated, frustrating women who tantalized but never bored their audience. She was too complex to be bottled, her quirky mannerisms and unusual beauty retained their ability to keep one guessing and hoping for the role that would bring all the strands together, and produce the movies' most absorbing case study of twentieth-century womanhood.
