Joe-Cool

When we were doing the film noir episode, because Warner Bros. has been a studio for a long time, they pulled a lot of costumes from the ’40s. I got to try on Lauren Bacall’s nightgown from The Big Sleep. It was so cool because Joe Dougherty, who wrote the noir episode, based Spencer’s character on Lauren Bacall. Toby was based on Humphry Bogart—our whole scene together was supposed to be a Bacall-and-Bogart callback. It really upsets me, actually, that we didn’t end up using that nightgown. I mean, how could you not use Lauren Bacall’s actual nightgown?!
