Lana Turner and Natalie Schafer in Keep Your Powder Dry (1945)

Schafer had said she initially did the pilot to Gilligan's Island (1964), for the free trip to Hawaii. Afterwards, Schafer was in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, on holiday when she got a telegram from the States. She read it and burst into tears. Everyone had thought Schafer's mother (who was ill at the time) had died, and offered their condolences, but Schafer had said no she didn't die, the reason she was crying was because the pilot for "Gilligan's Island" sold, and she had to stay in Los Angeles, and could not move back to New York City.

Although her contract included clauses forbidding certain close -ups and physical movements due to her age, she insisted that her obituary disclose her real age. She said she wanted people to say "she was HOW old?!.
