Marie Wilson (I) (1916–1972)


Lovely, innocent-looking, well-endowed comedienne Marie Wilson was a featherbrained delight instantly reminiscent of the zany Gracie Allen. Unlike Allen, however, Marie was a knockout--with high cheekbones, a wide slash of a mouth and a figure that wouldn't quit. She was born Katherine Elizabeth Wilson on August 19, 1916, in Anaheim, California. ... See full bio »

Trivia:

While several sources reveal that she was married to director Nick Grinde, who was largely responsible for Marie's early film career boost, the couple actually was at one time engaged and even announced a wedding date, but it never took place and they eventually parted, according to a Classic Images magazine article written by Marie's biographer Charles Tranberg.
