Richard Long  (her death)

Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[speaking of her cancer and leg amputation] I felt no pity for myself, nor have I any feeling of regret. Sometimes I pondered, "Why has this thing happened to me?" But it was never in terms of a complaint, I sought a real answer. It is not an easy one to find, and perhaps I will never know.


Married Richard Long at a Santa Barbara, CA, church on April 11, 1954, following her leg amputation due to cancer. She walked down the aisle using an artificial limb. In attendance were Rock Hudson, Barbara Rush, Jeff Chandler, Hugh O'Brian, Mala Powers, David Janssen, Tony Curtis and Janet Leigh. See more »
