Mausoleum of stars - slide 9

Mary Pickford

Her first directing job came when the director of the 1949 film, "Not Wanted," fell ill. In 1950, Ida directed the film, "Outrage" which dealt with the then controversial subject of rape. In 1953, she was the first woman to direct a film noir, "The Hitch-Hiker." During the 1950s, Lupino remained one of the only female directors in Hollywood, and was only the second woman to be inducted into the Director's Guild.

Iconic female star. They say the biggest stars have contradictions. Marilyn was dumb and smart, sexy and innocent, humble and proud.

This is my portrait, head shot for my starring role as Eve in the film entitled EVE AKA Face of Eve. It was shot in London in 1967!

Publicity still taken in a park in London, could have been Hyde Park for the film I would soon star in called EVE (AKA The Face of EVE) opposite Sir Christopher Lee! 1967
