Dona Drake, 1940s starlet

She was a beautiful exotic in Hollywood in those days, being a small portion African American. I am not sure if she thus played any female leads. She was absolutely stunning. Love the victory roll hairstyle here.


About kinneret

Hello, and welcome. I'm writing this blog under an alias. Why an alias? I started to write what may be described as an "American Gothic" novel (sort of Henry James/ Franz Kafka with violence) with some autobiographical details. ..when I started this blog I just decided to use the alias. This blog is about art and art history, but my interests also include literature, film analysis, psychology, forensic psychology, faerie tale analysis, cognitive therapy, cognitive linguistics, classical theater, World War II, and Russian and British history. My favorite writers include Kafka, the Brontes, and Philip K Dick. Thank you for reading this blog and I will happily reply to any comments.

    I probably never saw Dona Drake, in fact, I have never heard of her, but, from photography work, I see Hollywood makeup and lighting. Guinness Record eyelashes length.

    The epitomy of a slightly trashy, extremely unrealistically pretty doll face. I remember her.
