According to most sources, actress Lois Moran was the model for Daisy Buchanan in F. Scott Fitzgerald's The Great Gatsby. Never a great actress, Lois was always effervescent and willing to please, as proven in the jazz-age comedy Don't Marry. Stuck with a prudish boyfriend (Neil Hamilton, later Commissioner Gordon on TV's Batman), Lois tries to loosen him up by embarrassing him at a society party. Instead of expressing outrage, he is delighted by her behavior, and at film's end Lois and Neil are energetically dancing the Charleston. Coscripting Don't Marry was Sidney Lanfield, later a prolific comedy director.
