Rosalind Russell got an Oscar nomination for playing Ruth Sherwood in the '42 (non-musical) film My Sister Eileen. Years later she won a Tony for re-creating the role in the '53 Broadway musical Wonderful Town. Coming full circle, Russell starred in the TV version of Wonderful Town in '58.

BTW Shirley Booth initiated the role of Ruth Sherwood in the '40 Broadway play My Sister Eileen, which was still running when the movie came out.
