Seems she had an interesting if somewhat tragic life. How very different the image of physical beauty is today.

She did,indeed, have a difficult life.

However, her distinctive "look" and personality truly made her unique. Quite unlike the "beauties" of today that are undiscernable from each other.

Delightful video! Loved some of the teasing poses...I'm thinking of that one head and shoulder shot with the right strap askew. Even more interesting website! I'm sad to say I never heard of her before this, but what an interesting legacy she left. My oh my!
