Blame it on Mamie

Doing research for my next Noir of the Week article, I came across Mamie Van Doren’s website. I hope I have the same lust for life she does when I’m her age, but it reminded me how drop dead gorgeous she was/is.

A greater being strike me down, but I think she ran circles around Jayne Mansfield.

And in one of the best juvenile delinquency films of all time, Girls Town, aka The Innocent and the Damned. Mel Torme? A bad girl named Silver Morgan? Oh, yes.
