Maisie is a comedy film property MGM originally purchased for Jean Harlow, but before a shooting script could be completed, Harlow died in 1937. It was put on hold until 1939, when Ann Sothern was hired to star in the project with Robert Young as leading man. It is based on the novel Dark Dame by Wilson Collison. It was the first of 10 films starring Sothern as Maisie Ravier. In Mary C. McCall, Jr.'s screenplay, Maisie is stranded penniless in a small Wyoming town, takes a job at a ranch, and gets caught in a web of romantic entanglements.
