Personal Quote:

I didn't live near the studios in the hopes of "crashing" the gates. My ambition was to always be active in "little theater" and also to be a professor of Speech and Drama at U.C.L.A. See more »

Her second (to a naval officer named Bemis) and third (to a one-time Beverly Hills business manager of Elizabeth Taylor and Ginger Rogers named Howard Mager) were much shorter and also ended in divorce.
