Blind Items Revealed #5 - Old Hollywood

January 23, 2015

She was almost A-list for most of her all-too-brief movie career, but this beautiful actress achieved her greatest fame long after she retired from showbiz, after some movies she made overseas were rediscovered by critics and film buffs and declared some of the greatest of all time. This incident happened before she decided to step in front of a movie camera. She started out as a legitimate dancer then she landed a spot in two of the biggest revues on Broadway as a scantily dressed showgirl. Between shows, she earned extra money on the side prostituting herself to wealthy men. One of those wealthy men was an A++ list actor/comedian/jack of all trades, possibly the biggest actor in movies at that time.

This was covered in the biography Barry Paris wrote about her in the nineties. Interesting book.
