  • British playwright Leon Gordon is best known for a steamy bit of exotica called White Cargo, which was filmed twice, most memorably in 1940 with Hedy Lamarr as the estimable Tondelayo. Gordon was also a prolific novelist; his semi-comic novel I Love You Again was made into a delightful William Powell-Myrna Loy vehicle in 1941. As a screenwriter, Gordon was gainfully employed for over two decades by MGM, contributing to the scripts of such productions as Freaks (1932) and Tarzan and His Mate (1934). Leon Gordon was promoted to associate producer with MGM's Above Suspicion (1943), then to full producer for such prestige items as Mrs. Parkington (1944), The Green Years (1946) and That Forsyte Woman (1949).
