Beverly Michaels starred with another blonde that took over!
6 May 2000 | by (Marietta, Georgia) – See all my reviews

Beverly Michaels was discovered by Hugo Haas who then dropped her to discover "Cleo Moore" who has a few bit parts in the movie Blonde Bait as one of the prisoners. The movie is not that great but it is one of those movies that other stars were first seen and not mentioned (Cleo Moore).
