guess who?

She was largely home schooled, but did attend Bryn Mawr College.

She was nearly decapitated by an airplane propeller when she was trying to avoid the press at an airport.

A leading contender for Scarlett O'Hara in Gone with the Wind, she later served as Maid of Honor at Vivien Leigh's wedding to Laurence Olivier.

After a scene in which her character fell into a Venetian canal, she developed a permanent eye infection from the contaminated water.

She had a fear of fire.

She was a natural redhead.

She often wore slacks instead of dresses, decades before it became fashionable for women to do so.
