Sothern's agents reportedly turned down an offer for the actress to play the older courtesan in "Zorba the Greek" when Simone Signoret withdrew from the project. The part went to Lila Kedrova who won a Best Supporting Actress Oscar.

"I guess in the old days we just got by on glamor. Hollywood sold its stars on good looks and personality buildups. We weren't really actresses in the true sense. We were just big names--the products of a good publicity department". --Ann Sothern (in 1970s)
