June Lang, what a dish!

So I recently came across a few photos of June Lang and WOW what a beauty! I think the only movie of note that she did that I actually saw was Wee Willie Winkie (1937), but that was due to it being a Shirley Temple flick. I didn't actually know much about this stunning actress, so after doing a bit of reading on her I found out some interesting factoids.

Apparently she isn't THAT well known as it's possible an ill-fated marriage caused her to lose film work and possibly even be the reason she was let go from her studio contract. In 1940 she married a known mobster named Johnny Roselli. Roselli had a long list of frowned upon behavior, such as extortion, racketeering, and even murder. While they were only married for three years, apparently that was long enough for her reputation to be tarnished to the point that her studio dropped her and she struggled finding work from that point on.  Why do we ladies always go for the bad boys? ;)

In any case, I can't help but wonder if she could have grown past the B roles she was typically given and had a remarkable career had reputation not been such a make or break you thing back in the day. Here are some photos of her, such a beautiful lady...

  2. レイバン サングラスと同じデザインで、格安なサングラスを探していた。ネットでとんでもなく安く、見るから怪しいショップがあって、安いから試してもいいと思って、レイバン RB2140を一本買ってしまった。注文してから一週間後には到着だが、レイバン aviatorっぽいサングラスが届いた、ガッカリした。もう二度とあんなショップ利用しない。
