Popping Questions at Linda Darnell from Photoplay, December 1942:
⭐️Q: What was your most interesting date?
A: It was with Eddie Albert. We're both crazy about geology. He took me to the Bublichki; a Russian cafe, and everyone greeted him. Papa Bublichki came over with his guitar and Eddie sang Russian songs to me. Then he began to talk about geology and astrology and the lost continent of "Atlantis". He showed me constellations and talked so interestingly and glamorously that it's a date I will never forget.
⭐️Q: What type of man do you like best?
A: The Cary Grant type- gay, cheerful, tender, and attractive. I've never met Cary. He got married before I had a chance to, worse luck!
⭐️Q: How many pairs of stockings have you?
A: Two pairs of silk left, and no nylon. I don't wear hose very much so it isn't as heartbreaking as it appears.
⭐️Q: In love, are you the jealous type?
A: Yes. I don't hate the girl I might be jealous of, but I am hurt and miserable at the possibility that she is more beautiful, more lovable, more the kind of girl he might like. It's a horrible state, jealousy. Jaime Jorba is the only boy I was ever jealous of.

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 (#born Monetta Eloyse Darnell, #October 16, 1923 – #April 10, 1965) was an American film actress. Darnell progressed from modeling as a #child to #acting in #theater and film #as an adolescent. At the encouragement of her #mother, she made her #first film in #1939, and appeared in supporting roles in #big-#budget films for 20th #Century #Fox throughout the #1940s.

She died #two #days #later, rallying #into consciousness only once, when her adopted #daughter, Lola, visited her. Linda Darnell, the woman called "almost too beautiful," left behind an estate of only $10,000, which went to her #sixteen-#year-#old girl. Today Darnell is not remembered as well as #many of her #less-talented contemporaries, but an examination of her #career reveals a gifted beauty whose steamy #noir persona made her a tragic, unforgettable #entry in Hollywood #history.

#Her hostess and her #daughter escaped the #blaze, #but Darnell suffered #burns #over #eighty percent of her #body. #Some accounts had her escaping the fire only to re-enter the #house, #thinking her #friend's daughter had #not escaped; #others alleged she went #back to retrieve #her #mink #coat---the #last vestige remaining #from her glory #days.

The combination of a #stormy #personal #life and alcohol dependence dogged #her as she sped through the predictable downward spiral of #summer #stock, #television and #cabaret.

In #1965 Darnell was #visiting a former #secretary in a #suburb of #Chicago and #fell #asleep #with a lit #cigarette after watching a late #show of "Star #Dust" (#1940), wherein she #played a #young Hollywood hopeful.

#After "#Letter," the #parts Darnell #was #ready for weren't offered to #her. She received #good notices for "#No #Way #Out" (#1950), a race relations #drama ahead of #its #time, but as happened with #RitaHayworth, Hollywood tended to #treat #mature beauties in #non glamourous #roles as #if they were finished commercially in the #business.
