Personal Quote:

Detroit was one of the towns where I would appear on a kiddie TV show on Saturday morning as Shirley Jean of the Our Gang/Little Rascals, and disrobe on stage at night for the little kiddies' parents. See more »


After her film career (early 1950s) she became a blonde-maned exotic dancer who professionally went by "Gilda and Her Crowning Glory" and played both in the States and Canada. See more »


Platinum blond hair, heavily moussed, with four spit curls.
