Ever hear of the actress that played Anne in the 30's(?), loved the part

so much that she changed her name to Anne Shirley? Kinda creepy.

Kay: Senators and presidents don't have men killed.
Michael: Oh, who's being naive, Kay?


I honestly thought that was pretty cool of her to do that. I just hope people know who I'm talking about--I'm posting on the 2016 Anne movie and I made reference to the 30s movie and Anne Shirley. I bet a lot of people are gonna think I'm mixing up character and actress when I mention Anne Shirley and I mean the actress.
