Tragic beauty #LindaDarnell

One of my favorite Old Hollywood beauties, Linda Darnell. And she was a Texas girl! She started in Hollywood at 16 and her career was basically over by age 29. She was called the most physically perfect gal in Hollywood, and had a tumultuous life (pushy stage mom, dealing with sexism in Hollywood, and many failed romances and films). However, she was a great actress and interesting person. My favorites of her career are "Fallen Angel", "Blood and Sand" (her, Rita Hayworth and Tyrone Power in one film was almost too much beauty to handle), "My Darling Clementine" (considered by many to be the best Western ever), and "No Way Out" (a modern racial drama). #lindadarnell #oldhollywood #vintage #1940s

Linda Darnell died on April 9, 1965 at the age of 41 in the home of her former secretary, located in Glenview, Illinois. The house caught on fire in the early hours of the morning and she passed away that afternoon in Cook County Hospital.
Rest Heavenly, Angel ❤
(A little late, the anniversary of her death was yesterday, but I still wanted to post something about this lovely soul who's life was taken away from her so tragically, so young).

Linda Darnell, one of five children of a postal clerk, grew up fast. At 11, she was modeling clothes, giving her age as 16. At 13, she was appearing on the stage with little theater groups. Her mother encouraged her to audition when Hollywood talent scouts came to Dallas. She went to California and when the studio found out how young she really was, she was sent home and told to come back when she was 15. Her fourth film, Star Dust (1940), was based on this real life experience. It was Star Dust (1940) that Darnell was watching the night of April 9, 1965, at the home of her former secretary, located in Glenview, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. The house caught on fire in the early hours of the next morning and Darnell died that afternoon in Cook County Hospital. The character she played in one of her best known roles, Forever Amber (1947) survived the London fire, the plague and the perils of being the mistress of the English king, Charles II.

Linda Darnell (1923-1965), along with the aid of her then-husband Philip Liebmann (circa 1916-1972), helped found the Girls Town of Italy charity. Linda was making a film in Italy in the early 1950s and was touched by the sight of so many orphaned youth, particularly girls, in post WWII Italy. This charity, which exists alongside the Boys Town of Italy, gave the youth housing and education and is still in existence today. 💖💖💖 #lindadarnell #monettamonday #charity #girlstownofitaly #oldhollywood #vintagehollywood #classichollywood #classicactress #vintageactress #oldhollywoodactress #classicbeauty #vintagebeauty #philanthropy #brunette #classicbrunette #vintagebrunette #brunettebeauty #brunettebombshell
