Personal Quote:

But Hornblow [producer Arthur Hornblow] was jubilant about that eye-hiding trick. An experienced showman, he knew that the hairstyle was something people would talk about. He had a big picture and lots of talk would bring customers to see it. See more »

Was 8 months pregnant with her daughter Elaine when she completed filming Sullivan's Travels (1941). See more »
