Why she might be annoying
Just one month after divorcing singer Dick Haymes, she married actor John Ireland (1949).
She was typecast in Westerns even though she hated them. ('Those long gingham dresses with boned bodices are miserable things to wear.')
She filed for bankruptcy (1957).
She advertised for Camel cigarettes.
Why she might not be annoying
While working as a model, she was discovered by Al Jolson, who cast her in his Broadway show.
She divorced Ireland after he gave her two black eyes.
During filming of 'She Wore A Yellow Ribbon,' John Ford made her scream her lungs out on an empty soundstage to lower her voice an octave.
