guess who

While a teenager, she had a bodyguard she called "Palmtree".

When Gary Cooper met her for the first time, he asked for her autograph.

She was the box-office champion for three straight years, 1936-37-38, beating out Clark Gable, Bing Crosby, Robert Taylor, Gary Cooper and Joan Crawford.

She sat on the boards of many corporations and organizations including The Walt Disney Company, Del Monte Foods, and the National Wildlife Federation.

Her mother set her hair for most of her films - and was paid as her hairdresser.

She served as an ambassador to Ghana and Czechoslovakia.

When she was seven years old, her life was insured with Lloyd's of London, and the contract stipulated that no benefits would be paid if she met with death or injury while intoxicated.

A cocktail was created in her honor which consists of, Ginger Ale (or 7-Up), Grenadine and Orange Juice, topped with a Maraschino Cherry and a slice of lemon.

I think my new aim in life will be to become famous enough to have a cocktail named after me!

It's the dimples that made me think that other picture was her. That's fun trivia!

The dimples gave her away immediately.
