In his memoir I’D HATE MYSELF IN THE MORNING, screenwriter Ring Lardner jr mentions a conversation he had with movie producer Martin Ransohoff about a biopic of Jean Harlow (that was never made?) in which a woman was being cast to play Harlow despite her physical drawbacks:
" ‘And guess who they’re casting as Harlow?’ he exclaimed, naming a popular actress of the sixties whom he described, with evident disgust, as '‘the titless wonder’."
This conversation took place in the summer of 1964, so my question is: which actress was widely enough known at that point as small-breasted? My first thought was “Twiggy” but I think she first became famous a few years later. Jane Fonda, maybe? Seems a bit early for Jane as well. Your guess?
