      (Kitty Foyle was a year-end release, and RKO therefore promoted Rogers for an Oscar in this rather than in the other film, which RKO also produced.) For the record, Rogers does not give one of the two best performances in Kitty Foyle. Odette Myrtil is delicately poignant as Delphine Detaille, Kitty’s boss; and, in a rare comic outing, Eduardo. This is made clear in Stephen Ambrose’s brilliant new book, and the relationshipbetween Lewis and Jefferson, which is at the heart of Lewis’ life, has never been explored more deeply. Christopher Morley, writer (Kitty Foyle). Freeman F. Gosden, radio comedy writer and performer (Amos 'n' Andy). Carlos Baker, biographer. Author: Historynet Staff.

    Kitty Foyle (Rogers) is a hard-working, white-collar woman hopelessly in love with wealthy banking heir, Wynn Strafford (Morgan).   However, their relationship never comes together at the right time; so when Kitty meets penniless doctor, Mark (James Craig), she’s torn between which man she loves more. Christopher Morley’s novel Kitty Foyle is best known from the film of the next year, which gave Ginger Rogers a chance to shine (and to win an Academy Award) in a dramatic role. The movie is still well known, probably for that reason, but it should not put the book entirely in the shade, or be seen as a substitute for it.
