Wintertime (1943)

Carole Landis Wintertime

In 1943 Carole had a supporting role in the musical comedy Wintertime. She plays Flossie, a singer at a resort who is always fighting with her boyfriend. At the time she was under contract at 20th Century Fox. Caroler received fourth billing in the film. The cast includes Sonja Henie, Cornel Wilde, Jack Oakie, and Cesar Romero. This was the fourth (and final) film she made with her close friend Cesar Romero. They sing a duet titled "I Like It Here". Filming took place in Los Angeles from April until July of 1943. Fox originally planned to make the movie in Technicolor but instead they filmed it in black and white to save money. Wintertime was directed by John Brahm. Rene Hubert designed the costumes. It was released on September 17, 1943. The movie was a big hit and earned more than one million dollars at the box office. Unfortunately most of the reviwes focused on Sonja Henie and ignored Carole's performance.
