guess who?

She was fluent in English, Spanish, French, Dutch/Flemish and Italian.

She secretly danced for groups of people to collect money for the Dutch resistance during WWII.

One year after Marilyn Monroe sang "Happy Birthday, Mr. President" to President John F. Kennedy, this person, the President's favorite actress, sang "Happy Birthday, Dear Jack" to him, on what turned out to be his final birthday.

She had a Yorkshire terrier named Assam of Assam, a deer named Ip, and a cocker spaniel named Cokey.

She is one of the few people to have won an Emmy, a Grammy, an Oscar, and a Tony Award.

Rex Harrison called her his favorite leading lady and she became lifelong friends with co-star Gregory Peck.

Soon after her final film role, she was appointed a goodwill ambassador to the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF).

She was not only one of the biggest motion picture stars in Hollywood, but also a major fashion influence.

Have you seen the clip of her screen test where they ask her about working with the resistance? She has the look of a mischievious pixie.

Her biography was very interesting. I hate B at T's, but got through it only because she was in it.
