Personal Quote:

[We were] all just kids playing together. We had fun. The mothers on the other hand, were awful. Stage mothers are just vile women, including my own. [It was] my mother's dream, but it wasn't mine. See more »


After her film career (early 1950s) she became a blonde-maned exotic dancer who professionally went by "Gilda and Her Crowning Glory" and played both in the States and Canada. See more »


Platinum blond hair, heavily moussed, with four spit curls.
