Bathsheba" (FOX 1951)
"David and Bathsheba" (FOX
1951) starring Gregory Peck as King David, is considered a classic today, almost as well
known as the original Bible story. Jayne played Queen Michal, Davids first wife,
whom he divorces to marry Bathsheba.
One day Peck asked Jayne: "Why in the world would I give
you up to marry Bathsheba?" and he nicknamed her "the girl with the black velvet
eyes." Incidentally, his lovely wife, Veronique has black velvet eyes, as does
Jayne had to cover her natural red hair with an exotic black wig.
