Kay Aldridge (1917–1995)

This 1930s model and magazine cover-girl was employed, as often as not, as a beautiful "living statue" in early 1940s Hollywood Technicolor films, strictly to prettify a movie set while hardly saying a word. However, she did play talking characters such as "Nyoka the Jungle Girl" in 1940s black-and-white "B" serials. See full bio »
