Davis will later become the first African-American to be promoted to the rank of Major General. Hazel Court *Court was born in Sutton Coldfield, Warwickshire, lived in the Boldmere area and attended Boldmere School and Highclare College. Her father was G.W. Court, a cricketer who played for Durham CCC. At the age of fourteen, she studied drama at the Birmingham Repertory Theatre and the Alexandra Theatre, also in Birmingham, England. At the age of sixteen Court met film director Anthony Asquith in London, which won her a brief part in Champagne Charlie (1944). Court won a British Critics Award for her role as a crippled girl in Carnival (1946) and also appeared in Holiday Camp (1947) and Bond Street (1948). Her first role in a fantasy film was in Ghost Ship (1952). One of Court's most remembered films is the cult classic Devil Girl from Mars (1954). She trained at the Rank Organisation's "charm school". Court wanted to act in comedy films but she also continued to appear in horror films and, in 1957, had what was to become a career-defining role in the first colour Hammer Horror film The Curse of Frankenstein. In the 195758 television season, she appeared in a CBS sitcom filmed in England, Dick and the Duchess, in the role of Jane Starrett, a patrician Englishwoman married to an American insurance claims investigator living in London, a role played by Patrick O'Neal. Court traveled back and forth between Hollywood and England, appearing in four episodes of Alfred Hitchcock Presents. She had parts in A Woman of Mystery (1958), The Man Who Could Cheat Death (1959) and Doctor Blood's Coffin (1961) among others. Hazel Court By the early 1960s, Court had permanently moved to the United States. She was featured in the Edgar Allan Poe horror films The Premature Burial (1962), The Raven (1963) and The Masque of the Red Death (1964), the last two with Vincent Price. In 1981 Court appeared briefly in the third Omen film, The Final Conflict, although she was uncredited. She also appeared in episodes of several TV series, including Adventures in Paradise, Mission: Impossible, Bonanza, Dr. Kildare, Danger Man, Twelve O'Clock High, Burke's Law, Sam Benedict, Gidget, Mannix, The Wild Wild West, "Thriller", and in The Fear, the penultimate episode of the original 1960's The Twilight Zone. Court was married to Irish actor Dermot Walsh from 1949 until their divorce in 1963. They had a daughter, Sally Walsh, who appeared with her mother in The Curse of Frankenstein. From 1964 until his death in 1998, she was married to American actor Don Taylor, who was divorced in 1955 from actress Phyllis Avery. Court retired from the film acting business in 1964 to concentrate on being a wife and mother. Court and Taylor met while they were shooting an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents. They had a son, Jonathan, and a daughter, Courtney. In addition to acting, she was also a painter and sculptress, and studied sculpting in Italy. Court wrote her autobiography, Hazel Court Horror Queen, which was published by Tomahawk Press in the UK (April 2008) and in the US (June 2008). Court died of a heart attack at her home near Lake Tahoe, California, on 15 April 2008, aged 82. She is survived by daughters Sally Walsh and Courtney Taylor, son Jonathon Taylor and two stepdaughters, Anne Taylor Fleming and Avery Taylor. She was cremated and her ashes scattered at sea. Hazel Court once said in an interview "Just in case I should pop off to heaven in the night, I always remember to wash up, plump-up the cushions and straighten up after a dinner party. I wouldn't want everyone to come in and find it a mess. It's very English of me." Chevrolet Ad - March 1945

  13. Bendix Aviation Ad - March 1943 1940: U-boats sink seven neutral ships. 1942: Late in the afternoon after an unsuccessful Italian torpedo-aircraft attack, Admiral Iachino's squadron engages the British convoy. This protected itself with a smokescreen, but the cruiser HMS Cleopatra was damaged. Admiral Philip Vian, commanding the British escorts, now sent his destroyers in a torpedo attack on the Italian battleship Littorio. However, by now it was getting dark and so Admiral Iachino turned away from the British convoy and sailed for home. *June Haver 1942: A Polish newspaper editor is beheaded for listening to the BBC, as German terror continues in Poland. 1942: Japanese aircraft attack Darwin.

June Haver *June Haver was born on June 10, 1926, in Rock Island, Illinois, with the birth name of June Stovenour. Her parents divorced at an early age and she was adopted by Bert Haver, her stepfather. Her mother and new father moved to Cincinnati, where she appeared on the stage for the first time at the age of six in a local theater production of "Midnight in a Toyshop". Very soon after, June was winning musical contests around the Queen City. By 1936, little June and her mother had returned to the city of her birth, after a film screen test the year before. It was here that she blossomed even further with her singing, appearing on local radio. Later, while touring with various musical bands, June and her mother found their way to sunny California, in the entertainment mecca of Los Angeles. While in high school, she played in various secondary productions. In 1942, at the age of 16, June joined Fox Studios as a fringe actress. Dropped because the studio thought she was too young, they signed her the following year to appear in "The Gang's All Here" (1943). It was an uncredited part, but a start in the film world, nonetheless. Unless one looked hard, she would have been easy to miss in the film. Her next one with Fox was in 1944's "Home in Indiana" (1944). But it was her next film where she was able to showcase her acting talent in "Irish Eyes Are Smiling" (1944). In 1945, she appeared in "Where Do We Go from Here?" (1945) with her future husband, Fred MacMurray, who she wed in 1954. It was the only film the two of them would be in together. In 1946, at the age of 20, June got top billing for the first time in "Three Little Girls in Blue" (1946). Her only other film that year was "Wake Up and Dream" (1946). After only one film in 1947, June resurfaced the next year in the utterly forgettable "Scudda Hoo! Scudda Hay!" (1948). This was one of the starting vehicle's for a rising talent named Marilyn Monroe. In 1949, June was in two productions. They were "Look for the Silver Lining" (1949) and "Oh, You Beautiful Doll" (1949). By now, it was obvious that she was being groomed to take over the Fox throne held by Betty Grable. It was not to be, because June was about to leave films, altogether. The filming of 1953's "The Girl Next Door" (1953) proved to be her last silver screen appearance. She had announced, the year before, that she would become a nun after her contract ran out. She had been engaged to studio dentist, John Duzik when he died unexpectedly from complications from surgery. Shortly afterward, in February of 1953, true to her word, she joined a convent in Xavier, Kansas with the intention of becoming a nun. Was happy there until a serious illness forced her to leave and return to California in September 1953. Although she had planned to return to the convent after her recovery, she never did. It was after she left the convent that she was seen with Fred MacMurray. After they were wed, the couple adopted twin girls. June's last foray into the glare of the camera lights was when she played herself in the television production of "The Lucy-Desi Comedy Hour" (1957). She died of respiratory failure in Brentwood, California on July 6, 2005. June Haver TRIVIA: Measurements: 34-23-35 Her sisters followed her to Hollywood and served as her stand-ins, while her mother was Haver's personal secretary. First husband, Jimmy Zito, was a trumpeter whom she met while performing as a teenage "big band" singer. The marriage lasted barely a year (1947-1948). Nicknamed the "pocket Grable," she was making $3,500 a week at 20th Century Fox when she said goodbye to it all and became a novice nun in the Sisters of Charity convent. In 1996 she sold her and her late husband's 1,500-acre Healdsburg ranch to the Gallo family. She maintained a home in Brentwood. She died in her Brentwood estate in 2005.

Dahl, a Ford motor dealer and executive. She is of Norwegian descent. After graduating from Washburn High School, she held various jobs, including performing in a local drama group and briefly working as a model for department stores. Dahl's mother was involved in the theater. As a child she took elocution and dancing lessons and acted in local amateur theater. She was active in theatrical events at Margaret Fuller Elementary School, Ramsey Junior High School and Washburn Senior High School. Dahl briefly attended the University of Minnesota. Dahl was voted the Rheingold Beer Girl of 1946. The Rheingold ad campaign was one of the most famous campaigns of one of the most popular beers in New York from the 1940s through the 1950s. There was a Miss Rheingold contest each year, and by the early 1950s, more than 25 million votes were cast annually. The winner received a cash payment as well as a modeling contract and many other opportunities. The first winner, Jinx Falkenburg, had a long career on radio. Other winners were Tippi Hedren, Hope Lange and Grace Kelly. She began her acting career in 1947. She reached the peak of her popularity and success in the 1950s. Some of her best films include: "Reign of Terror" (1949), "Three Little Words" (1950), "Woman's World" (1954), "Slightly Scarlet" (1956), and "Journey to the Center of the Earth" (1959). Arlene Dahl Dahl met actor Lex Barker in the early 1950s, and on April 16, 1951, Dahl and Barker wed. A year later she and Barker divorced, and Dahl would go on to marry another matinee idol, Fernando Lamas. Barker went on to marry Lana Turner. In 1958 Dahl and Lamas had their only son, Lorenzo Lamas. Shortly after giving birth to Lorenzo, Dahl slowed and eventually ended her career as an actress, although she still appeared in movies and on television occasionally. Dahl would go on to work as a beauty columnist and as a writer. Dahl and Lamas divorced in 1960, and Dahl later remarried. Aside from Lorenzo Lamas, Dahl has two other children: a daughter Christina (born August 3, 1961) by third husband Christian R. Holmes, and a second son, Rousevelle Andreas (born December 8, 1970), by her fifth husband Rousevelle W. Schaum. She has 6 grandchildren and divides her time between New York City and West Palm Beach, Florida. Arlene Dahl was both a mystery guest and a panelist on the TV Game show "What's My Line". She appeared on the ABC television network's soap opera "One Life to Live" as Lucinda Schenck Wilson from 1981 to 1984. Lucinda was planned to be a short-termed role, but she was later offered a one-year contract to appear on the show. The last film in which she appeared, which followed a hiatus of more than 20 years, was the 1991 film, "Night of the Warrior", which starred her son, Lorenzo Lamas.

    spring at last! just a few more snow storms and it will be nice
  22. Of course! and most of them happen to be 'in my area'. Unfortunately that means they can't be in your area as well. Sorry, guys.
  23. Doesn't everybody? Seriously, I get ads from Revlon, Proctor and Gamble (Women't Deodorant), Kimberly-Clark Corporation (Kotex), Chanel (Perfume), Johnson & Johnson and Merck (Birth Control) among others. The Babes in the Babe Bunker™ need to be supplied. See why I have to reach out to try and get corporate sponsors? The Dude hasn't been making his support payments, what am I saying, he has never made a support payment. And I can't sue him because he is in Canada, and I can't afford the attorney's fees.

Dorothy Lamour *Dorothy Lamour was born with the birth name of Mary Leta Dorothy Slaton on December 10, 1914, in New Orleans, Louisiana. She was a beautiful child who turned heads as a teenager with her long dark hair. However, her dream was to become a professional singer not actress. After she won a beauty contest as Miss New Orleans in 1931, she headed to Chicago to find her work as a singer. For a time, Dorothy worked as an elevator operator in a department store before going on to become a vocalist in the Herbie Kay band. Kay became her first husband in 1935, but the marriage only lasted four years. In addition to the band, Dorothy also sang on a Chicago radio program. Besides Kay, she performed with Rudy Vallee and Eddie Duchin. 1933 found Dorothy in Hollywood where she landed an uncredited bit part as a chorus girl in the musical "Footlight Parade" (1933). She didn't appear in films again until 1936 when she landed a part as a coed in "College Holiday" (1936). Later in 1936, Dorothy got the part of Ulah in "The Jungle Princess" (1936) produced by E. Lloyd Sheldon and filmed at Paramount. This film was a tremendous moneymaker as Dorothy stole the show in her wrap-around sarong. Dorothy became an instant star as the child of nature/female Tarzan, raised with a pet tiger among the tropical natives. Ray Milland starred opposite her as the man from civilization who woos and wins her. The scene where Milland is trying to teach her the word kiss is touching yet humorous. When he kisses her and tells her that is a kiss she runs away. She went on to play similar parts in the sarong in productions including "The Hurricane" (1937), "Typhoon" (1940), "Beyond the Blue Horizon" (1942) and her final big-screen sarong feature, "Donovan's Reef" (1963). Although Dorothy actually only wore a sarong in six of her 59 pictures, it defined her career. The sarong stayed with her in the Bob Hope / Bing Crosby "Road" pictures for Paramount. The trio starred in "Road to Singapore" (1940), "Road to Zanzibar" (1941), "Road to Morocco" (1942), "Road to Utopia" (1946) and "Road to Bali" (1952). A final "Road" picture, "Road to the Fountain of Youth" was in the works in 1977, until Bing Crosby's sudden death. The final completed "Road" picture, "The Road to Hong Kong" (1962), had Hope and Crosby in their usual roles, but no Dorothy this time - Joan Collins had the female lead in it. Dorothy was a great actress with roles in "Disputed Passage" (1939), "Dixie" (1943) and "On Our Merry Way" (1948). She could show great range in both comic and dramatic roles. After making three films in 1949, her career began to trail off. She only made ten films between 1951 and 1987. That last one was "Creepshow 2" (1987) where she played a housewife who gets murdered, a long way from the "Road" pictures and movies such as "Johnny Apollo" (1940) and "A Medal for Benny" (1945). Dorothy Lamour During World War II, she toured the country, selling in excess of $300 million worth of war bonds. Lamour's good humor and lack of pretension allowed her to have a remarkably long career in show business for someone best known as a glamour girl. She was a popular draw on the dinner theatre circuit of the 1970s. In the 1960s and 1970s, she lived with her longtime husband William Ross Howard III (whom she married in 1943), in the Baltimore suburb of Towson, Maryland. He died in 1978. Lamour published her autobiography "My Side of the Road" in 1980, revived her nightclub act, and performed in plays and television shows such as "Hart to Hart", "Crazy Like a Fox", and "Murder, She Wrote". During the 1990s, she made only a handful of professional appearances but she remained a popular interview subject for publications and TV talk and news programs. In 1995, the musical "Swinging on a Star", a revue of songs written by Johnny Burke opened on Broadway and ran for three months; Lamour was credited as a "special advisor". Burke wrote many of the most famous "Road to..." movie songs as well as the score to Lamour's "And the Angels Sing". The musical was nominated for the Best Musical Tony Award and the actress playing "Dorothy Lamour" in the Road movie segment, Kathy Fitzgerald, was also nominated. Lamour died on September 22, 1996 at her home in North Hollywood, California at the age of 81 from a heart attack.
