Here is another one of our favourite blondes. We have fallen in love with Veronica Lake; with her low, dense voice, her obscure film noir characters and, of course, her peek-a-boo bang hairstyle. Hers is a tragic story: after being one of the most desired and admired Hollywood goddesses during her film noir years and her association with Alan Ladd, she slowly began to fade when her main physical feature, the famous peek-a-boo bang, was prohibited during the World War II (since girls tried to work in the army with the same hairdo, covering one of their eyes, with the most awful results). Some bad choices and the end of the film noir genre did the rest. She ended her years working as a waitress in a diner. But we will always remember her for her strong, independent and sexy personality.

I really like her role at The Blue Dahlia. Very charming.

A mi tambien me encanto en "The Blue Dahlia", pero donde me enamore de ella fue en "The Glass Key": hace un personaje alucinante y lleva unos vestidos absurdos. Maravillosa!

Oh my god! I had no idea. But on the other hand, why do we assume that just because she went from being famous to obscurity she was necessarily a sad case? Perhaps she never enjoyed being famous...

Just a thought.
