Chorus girl, Hope Chandler, in the dressing room backstage at the Paradise cabaret restaurant in NYC 1937. Photo by Peter Stackpole. Photo was on the cover of LIFE when she was 16 & named the “Prettiest Girl in Paradise”. David Whitmire Hearst, son of Wm R Hearst, saw the pic & promised that he would marry her before she was snatched up by another suitor. They married in 1938 and they remained together happily for 48 years until his death in 1986. Hope passed away in 2012.
