    She was an excellent singer & dancer.

    She was in a Western with Errol.

      I would say she was a light to medium brunette, twinarchers.

      Before her film with Errol, she did a(n) (in)famous nude swimming scene.

      Immediately before filming with Errol she was in one of the greatest films of all time.

      I just added a cropped photo of her at top, twinarchers. It’s not from the movie, nor at the scene of the near-killing of Arno, but that’s her.

      Michael Curtiz thought she was exceptionally good in her performance with Errol.

      P.S. She was very bright and later became rather big in the world of early data processing/computer systems.

        Ok GT that looks like Shirley Mills???? if so she played in the 1940 Virginia City with Errol, in a crying scene- small role, in fact not even credited… she was good everything she did, no mater and not a shabby broad to look at either.

                I apologize, TZ. I thought the story came up in the ‘Growing Up On the Set’ link above. Apparently, though, the key page (page 206) does not come up on that. So, here’s another try!
