MARY ANDERSON

Cute, petite Mary Anderson couldn't have asked for a better screen debut.  The then sixteen-year old was cast in arguably the most famous film of all time, 1939's Gone with the Wind, albeit in a very small part.  Minor roles in major films would pretty much summerize Mary's Hollywood career.  One of her finest performances came in the Alfred Hitchcock classic Lifeboat (1944), playing one of nine survivors of a sunken passenger ship.  The remainder of her film career would be spent doing B-Movies that for the most part, went unnoticed by the public.
FILMOGRAPHY: Gone with the Wind (1939), Cheers for Miss Bishop (1941), Bahama Passage (1941), The Song of Bernadette (1943), Lifeboat (1944), Within These Walls (1945), Whispering City (1947)

MICHELE CAREY

A bewitchingly beautiful blonde, Michele Carey started out as a Powers Model, before being discovered by esteemed director Howard Hawks.  In 1966, Hawks cast Michele in his Western classic El Dorado opposite two of Hollywood's most intimidating actors John Wayne and Robert Mitchum (plus a young James Caan).  Michele held her own, as she would do two years later opposite Elvis Presley in the hokey Live a Little, Love a Little.  Career-wise, thing went down hill from there with a string of B-Movies and some guest spots on television sumerizing the remainder of her career.
FILMOGRAPHY: El Dorado (1966), Live a Little, Love a Little (1968), The Animals (1970), Dirty Dingus Magee (1970), The Norliss Tapes (1973)

DIANA DORS

I didn't see my first Diana Dors film until a year ago, and I will be the first to say, I didn't realize what I was missing.  With stimulating, bedroom eyes, a pulse-quickening figure and two of the most luscious lips this side of Angelina Jolie, her pics don't do her justice.  She was dubbed "Britain's Marilyn Monroe," however, it would be a disservice to her career to lump her in as just another factory-line sex symbol.  A talented actress, Diana received most of the critical acclaim for her career years past her glamour girl days.  Still, you have to see Diana in her heyday, (the film that had me drooling was 1957's The Unholy Wife) just to see how fine she was.  Sadly, Diana passed away in 1984 of stomach cancer. 
FILMOGRAPHY: Dance Hall (1950), The Unholy Wife (1957), Passport to Shame (1958), I Married a Woman (1958), On the Double (1961) There's a Girl in My Soup (1970)

BETSY PALMER

Betsy Palmer, a very attractive, talented blonde who got her training on the stage, will forever be remembered as the hatchet welding psycho mom from the first Friday, the 13th.  Betsy began her Hollywood career in 1955, starring opposite such heavyweights as Henry Fonda, James Cagney and Jack Lemmon in the classic Mister Roberts.  A string of B-Movies followed, along with numerous guest appearances on television shows.  She had been in semi-retirement before accepting the Friday the 13th role in 1980.  The film became a cult classic and revived Betsy's career, which is still going strong today.
FILMOGRAPHY:  Mister Roberts (1955), The Tin Star (1957), The Last Angry Man (1959), Friday the 13th (1980)
