Most Glenda Farrell movies seen in a day: 3

In the morning it was a PRC turkey from 1947: "Heading For Heaven". In the afternoon there was a slight improvment with the 1938 Universal B picture "Prison Break". In the evening it was an old time favourite: Frank Tashlin's "The Disorderly Orderly" (Paramount 1966).
Interesting that a washed up actress who was down to acting for PRC (a skid row studio) in 1947 could hang around long enough to be second billed in a 1966 A picture for Paramount (The Disorderly Orderly).
