Did You Know?
At Metro, you practically had to go to the front office if you wanted something as real as having your hair mussed. . . All automobiles were shiny, a picture never hung crooked, a door never squeaked, stocking seams were always straight and no actress ever had a shiny nose.
In 1959 she penned her frank autobiography, "My Story," which was a best seller, a tell-all in which she openly discussed her battle with alcohol and her failed marriages, but, interestingly, avoided the subject of her film career. She also wrote five novels and came out with a memoir, "A Life on Film", in 1971, in which she DID discuss her film career. This was also a best seller.
