Jeanne Carmen 1930 - 2007

I saw on the news yesterday that 1950's pin-up Jeanne Carmen passed away from lymphoma. She was 77. Carmen was also a B-movie actress and starred in films like "Guns Don't Argue!" and "The Monster of Piedras Blancas". She ran away from home in an Arkansas farm at age 13 with dreams of becoming a Hollywood star. She moved to New York City later on and became a dancer in a Broadway show called "Burlesque," with comic Burt Lahr. She later went into modeling, gaining a measure of success with a series of cheesecake shots in men's magazines. She came to Hollywood while still in her 20s, where she appeared in a series of low-budget movies. Carmen also claimed to having affairs with Frank Sinatra and other stars from her time.
I found this image below of Carmen and Dita Von Teese and doesn't she look great for her age? Rest in peace Jeanne Carmen!
