Lasky's partnership with Mary Pickford held great promise when it commenced in September 1936. Both had been successful pioneers in the film industry, with Pickford at one time making movies for Lasky's company, Famous Players-Lasky. During their partnership, they made two films together, The Gay Desperado and One Rainy Afternoon (both 1936), but the two headstrong executives clashed often and dissolved their company shortly thereafter.
