Grahame, who was born Gloria Grahame Hallward, acted under the name Gloria Hallward when she made her Broadway debut in 1943. Although the onscreen credits announce the "introduction" of actor Marshall Thompson, he made his first screen appearance in the 1944 Universal film The Reckless Age (see below). Blonde Fever was producer William H. Wright's first picture for M-G-M.
