Bing Crosby's cameo in "My Favorite Brunette" bob hope and bing crosby had an arraingement to do cameos in each other's movies, however, bing had already done a cameo in bob's last movie, so it wasn't bing's turn. Bob wanted bing to do this cameo so badly that bob offered to pay bing $5000. which bing donated to charity. Bing Crosby walked on set, skipped makeup, ( already made up from another movie he was shooting on the lot), stopped at wardrobe, (which consisted of donning a prison guard shirt), and did his bit in one take, leaving the soundstage in just 5 minutes, making a Hollywood record for the most money per minute payed to an actor. scource: My grandfather, Elliott Nugent, directed this movie and wrote about it in his autobiography "Events Leading up to the Comedy" Oh yeah, about Alan Ladd playing the private eye, Elliott Nugent directed him in 'The Great Gatsby".
