Happy Birthday Veronica Lake

She was more loathed than loved in Hollywood, but her hair made history.


  1. Thank you. I had no idea Ms. Lake had this birthday. Mine is tomorrow, and from all that I know - I share it with Ed Asner and Petula Clark. Hmmmm. I don't care if she could act (because so few could then) she was definitely working a look Mr. Grant could never know and Petula could never realize. Reminds me of a less talented Lizbeth Scott.

  2. Happy Birthday, D.B.!

    How do you know Ed couldn't pull off the Lake look? I think peekaboo bangs would be very fetching.

    Yeah, Lake wasn't the best actress, but she definitely steals attention away from any costar just by being there.

    How bad could she get? You MUST see the trailer for her last film, "Flesh Feast," on youtube. ("How do you like my maggots? A-HA-HA-HA-HA-HA!")
