A Woman's Face

In February 1941, the New York Times reported that George Cukor was planning a Hollywood remake of the 1938 Swedish film En Kvinnas Ansikte (A Woman's Face), which had starred Ingrid Bergman as woman disfigured in childhood who is made beautiful by a plastic surgeon. In Cukor's version, Joan Crawford would take Bergman's role. The report ended with the line:

The plot has been expanded in a melodramatic direction, and Mr. Cukor cheerfully admits that it might be an Alfred Hitchcock film.[1]

Whether Hitchcock was approached in unknown, but Cukor went on to direct the film himself.
