Kelly stayed at the Marmont while she was filming the 1952 movie "High Noon." She would go on to make many other movies, but according to Sarlot and Basten, the actress was nervous at first about her job. "There were times when she would return to the studio looking rather distraught," they wrote. "One day while passing through the lobby, she was overheard to say, 'I wonder if I'm going to be any good.'" Other guests remembered hearing her rehearse her lines loudly in her room.
