In 1949, Janet Leigh was one of the stars of The Red Danube. The film's stars included Walter Pidgeon, Ethel Barrymore, Angela Lansbury and also Peter Lawford, the actor that Janet Leigh shared many of her scenes in the movie with (the pair had already both appeared in Little Women earlier in 1949 and would be re-teamed again in 1952 for the wonderful romantic comedy Just This Once).
