The Vamp

Like most screenwriters, Nunnally Johnson was often peeved by the liberties which directors took with his scripts. While watching the rushes one day during the production of Fritz Lang's The Woman in the Window (1944), Johnson became furious when Joan Bennett appeared in her role as the vamp. "Oh, my God," Nunnally sarcastically exclaimed, "I forgot to write that she did not carry a two-foot cigarette holder!"
