Let us remember the beautiful Susan Hayward who died on March 14-1975 at age 57.
Susan was born Edythe Marrenner and was discovered in 1937 as a New York fashion model. She was asked to go to Hollywood to test for the role of Scarlett O'Hara in Gone With The Wind.

Susan received her first of five Academy Award nominations for best actress in 1947 for Smash-up, The Story of A Woman. In 1949 she was nominated for My Foolish Heart, in 1952, With A Song On My Heart, in 1955 for I'll Cry Tomorrow and finally winning the Oscar in 1958, for I Want To Live.

Susan's grandmother Kate Harrigan was an actress in County Cork, Ireland.Susan acted in several plays n High School and was voted, "Most Dramatic".

Susan acted in the stage play, Mame, in Las Vegas and received good reviews. She was a singer but did not like the sound of her own voice. Her voice was dubbed in With A Song In My Heart but is her own on the music soundtrack album.

Susan's admired Barbara Stanwyck as an actress and as a person. They became friends. She usually remained aloof from top celebrities but was always friendly with the hairdressers, stage hands, and doormen.

Susan's last public appearance was at the Academy Awards on April 2, 1974 when she presented the best actress award. Her introduction described her as a "living miracle". She appeared in a beautiful green gown specifically designed for her. She was accompanied by Charlton Heston. After the awards she suffered a seizure in her car on the way home.

Susan was diagnosed with a brain tumor in 1972. It is suspected that while filming The Conqueror with John Wayne in 1956, that she developed cancer from the radioactive fallout in St. George, Utah. 91 of 220 of The Conqueror film cast and crew had died of cancer by the end of 1980. Among those who died of cancer in addition to Susan were John Wayne, Agnes Moorehead, Pedro Armendariz and director Dcl Powell.

Susan had twin sons, Timothy and Gregory Barker from her marriage to Jess Barker.

After Doris- no other "star" gets to me as much as Elizabeth- I adore her, her beauty, talent, lack of ego, and of course, her humanitarian works. What a lady.

They also appeared in "Starlift" together. Always thought it was too bad they didn't have more than just a very short dance duet in that picture.

Joan was a real character - coat-hangers or not! She had to climb out of poverty by her fingernails.

Love all the people you've mentioned, Johnny.

Gosh Gia Scala died young!
Just did a quick search, I didn't know she was born in Liverpool or that:
On April 30, 1972, it all ended for Gia Scala. She was found dead in her Hollywood Hills bedroom following an overdose of alcohol and sleeping pills. This incredible beauty who never reached her full potential in Hollywood instead became another Tinseltown statistic.
