Movies: “Where Love Has Gone”

Nov. 8, 1963 - Bette Davis (left) has been signed to co-star with Susan Hayward (right) and Mike Connors (center) in “Where Love Has Gone,” the adaptation of Harold Robbins’ novel, which will soon go before the cameras in Hollywood. The Oscar winners have never appeared together in a film. Miss Hayward will portray a successful sculptor whose teenage daughter is charged with murder, and Miss Davis will have the role of Miss Hayward’s socialite mother. Some observers have noted similarities between the story and the real-life case of Cheryl Crane, daughter of actress Lana Turner, who in 1958 stabbed and killed her mother’s boyfriend, Johnny Stompanato, claiming that she was defending Turner from attack. Robbins has refused to acknowledge any connection. Edward Dmytryk will direct the Embassy-Paramount production from a scenario by John Michael Hayes. Miss Davis recently completed “The Empty Canvas,” based on Alberto Moravia’s novel, in Rome.
