Today Marks the 95th Birthday of Veronica Lake
Today marks the 95th birthday of actor Veronica Lake.
I quite like Lake and she's in some great movies, from Sullivan's Travels to The Blue Dahlia. My favorite is This Gun For Hire. Lake's career in Hollywood was brief and tumultuous, and she was gone within a few years, but she left a tremendous mark few have been able to match.
Lake passed in the early 70's, but that's a whole other story. If you only know her from glamour photos, seek out one of her films.
