    She was married and divorced four times, including marrying and divorcing Richard Fincher twice.
    She endorsed Chesterfield cigarettes.
    Turner Classic Movies noted that she ‘never made it to the front ranks of film stardom and none of her credits can be considered a major classic.’
    A 1949 pin-up style photo of her has been misattributed to Frances Bavier and circulated around the internet, inspiring plenty of ‘Who knew Aunt Bee was such a babe?’ comments.
    In addition to her movie roles, she sang in nightclubs and with big bands, and had a Top 20 hit with ‘Because of You.’.
    She portrayed her real-life mother, a vaudeville performer, in the musical ‘Three Little Words.’
    She said about her decision not to write an autobiography, ‘I’ve been asked, twice, but the only books that sell a lot are kiss and tell.’
