I Loved a Woman is a 1933 American pre-Code drama directed by Alfred E. Green, starring Kay Francis, Edward G. Robinson, and Genevieve Tobin. According to producer Hal Wallis' autobiography (with Charles Higham), Robinson and Francis "were oddly matched. Kay was so tall that we had to put Eddie [Robinson] on a box in some scenes to bring him level with her and, understandably he was humiliated. Irritable and self-conscious, he argued with Kay frequently. But he [...] gave credit to her fine acting." However, it was Wallis and other executives who also made the choice to cut three of Kay's scenes, leaving her presence in the film really as a supporting actor.[1]


John Hayden, owner of a Chicago meat-packing company, falls in love with a beautiful opera singer.
