Cannot Believe They Spelled CORINNE Griffith's Name Wrong!!!


I just bought the DVD of this movie, which I hadn't seen in decades. I'm a big fan of the silent star Corinne Griffith, author of the memoir Papa's Delicate Condition on which this movie is based. I was totally shocked to see the opening credits announcing this movie was based on a book by Corrine Griffith!!! That is not only outrageous but unprofessional. I get that many people in the 1960's might not have remembered Corinne Griffith as a celebrity (although she was knocking out various books pretty regularly) but that is just incredibly sloppy not to get the name of ANY book author's name wrong in the credits of a film even if they are a complete unknown. No wonder Ms. Griffith wasn't particularly fond of this movie!!
