Trivia: JOSEPH GERSHENSON was head of the music department at Universal Studios, so you'll see his name on many credits as composer or arranger. Besides 615-KITTEN WITH A WHIP, he did the scores for: L02-THIS ISLAND EARTH; 801-REVENGE OF THE CREATURE; 803-THE MOLE PEOPLE; 804-THE DEADLY MANTIS; and 805-THE THING THAT COULDN'T DIE. Gershenson also produced a few films, including 802-THE LEECH WOMAN.

Born Ann Margaret Olsson in Sweden in 1941, ANN-MARGRET's film career was first hampered by her beauty. After attending Northwestern University, she toured her singing act which came to the attention of George Burns and Jack Benny. This lead to her first role, that of the daughter unaware of her humble beginnings in 1961's Pocketful of Miracles, starring Bette Davis and Glenn Ford.

She was wasted in a boring 1962 remake of State Fair (co-star Pat Boone). After she made the 1963 musical Bye Bye Birdie, she made KITTEN WITH A WHIP. Then there was fun with Elvis Presley on the set of 1964's Viva Las Vegas. Ann-Margret later married actor Roger Smith, who became her manager and who obtained better roles for her. She received rave notices for her performance in 1971's Carnal Knowledge (her first Oscar nomination; starred Jack Nicholson).

Ann-Margret's career was delayed in 1972 by a serious fall during the performance of her nightclub act. These films followed: 1975's Tommy (another nomination; she played the title character's mother, rolling in chocolate); 1978-Magic (with Anthony Hopkins); 1979-The Villain (with Kirk Douglas); 1983-Who Will Love My Children? (TV-movie); 1984-A Streetcar Named Desire (TV-movie); 1986-The Two Mrs. Glenvilles (TV mini-series with Claudette Colbert); 1992-Newsies; 1993-Grumpy Old Men; and 1995-Grumpier Old Men. Ann-Margret's show is still a staple at Las Vegas. Oh, yeah...she played the character "Ann Margrock" on a 1963 TV episode of The Flintstones. Twitch! Twitch!
