Note: Lauren Bacall’s “real” name was Betty Persky, but Humphrey Bogart’s name was Humphrey Bogart, Jr.

  1. And in those days an effort was made to keep the names neutral. No ‘foreign sounding names’ –which covered a LOT of territory, and unless you were a comedic actor, you got a name that was more ‘suitable”. Judy Garland, for instance, was Frances Gumm.

    Found this, it’s obvious why the names were changed, partly for simplicity sake: Let’s face it, Leonard Slye sounds more like a raggedy looking gangster than a singing cowboy, right?
