Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

[in a 1963 interview] I thought I was Jeanette MacDonald, my idol. When I looked in the mirror, that's who I was. I did not see me. When I first saw myself on the screen in The Great Victor Herbert (1939), I thought, "Oh my God, I'm not Jeanette MacDonald!" I was so disappointed. I never liked myself on the screen. See more »

Trivia:

Noteworthy if only for her attendance at the "great unveiling" of Claude Rains in Universal's Technicolor Phantom of the Opera (1943). She was found living in a car in 1982. See more »
