The Mary Anderson was one of the older theaters in downtown Louisville. Part of an office building, it was gutted long ago. The Kentucky still exists, though gutted and repurposed. The drive-ins are all gone.The Louisville Palace and has been completely restored.
Memorial Auditorium, a handsome Greek revival-style venue, still exists. Who knew that Paulette Goddard toured in The Waltz of the Toreadors? In 1958, Melvyn Douglas took it back to Broadway with Betty Field. Perhaps Paulette had had enough.
