Trivia:

Briefly under contract to 20th Century-Fox as a teen in the '40s, making only a slight impact with her first film, Junior Miss (1945). Fox misused her, giving her only small parts. After her contract ended, she went back to school, reappearing after graduation in more smallish parts for other studios. Although a talent, Barbara was never given a lead in a movie. See more »
