Personal Quote:

When I left the Fox lot about a year ago I was so nervous I didn't know if I was temperamental or not. So I moved to the beach for three months and became just a kid again, doing the things kids like to do and enjoying myself generally. Then I came back and want to work because I wanted to prove to myself that I am not temperamental. See more »

Trivia:

A simple funeral was held at the Sunshine Mission for Women where its founder, Pastor Essie Binkley West, performed last rites, saying "She played her greatest role when she became a star for Jesus". No one from her glory days in Hollywood was there, but a fairly large crowd came from the surrounding community of Skid Row. See more »
