Her co-star Gregory Peck, was initially set to get top billing in the film but Peck made Paramount executives change it, saying, “… I’m smart enough to know this girl’s going to win the Oscar in her first picture, and I’m going to look like a damned fool if her name is not up there on top with mine”.
