  • Eleanor Boardman went dutifully along with her husband’s desires, but was none too thrilled about the story. An unregenerate snob (“I didn’t care about ordinary people,” she told Kevin Brownlow), Boardman much preferred starring in films of glamour and romance in which she could wear “lovely clothes [and men would be] madly in love with me. [The Crowd] was a job I had to do. I didn’t like to be so drab and unattractive, the hair hanging down, no makeup on. I didn’t object to it—inwardly I did—but … I had confidence in Vidor; I knew he knew what he was doing.”
