Who am I? - A Monday Quiz
Can anyone guess this who this fabulous actress is?
"I was born May 16, 1911, and my parents were not vaudeville performers and I did not see the world through the keyhole of a trunk. My native city is Norfolk, Virginia, but I began my theatrical career in Boston, where I suppose I ate beans occasionally like all good Bostonians. While in Boston, I met a chap who was with a rival stock company and later married him. He's doing all right in pictures now, too, but we were divorced less than a year after the wedding."
"Determined on a theatrical career, I appeared in a couple of terrific flops but the critics said I was okay. So I didn't eat an arsenic salad to end it all. While playing in the stage version of Dinner at Eight, a Universal scout saw me and I landed my first movie role in Only Yesterday. Later I married the director of another picture I was in, but we parted in 1936 and I'm now married to an agent. I am five feet 2 1/2 inches tall, weigh 108 pounds and have never hunted antelopes in Patagonia."
"Who am I?" Hint - This is from 1941
