Stars who unbend

The February 2 1950 edition of the Toronto Daily Star contained this brief article:


Lois Andrews (1924-1968) was married and a mother when still in her teens: she was actor George Jessel‘s wife between 1940 and 1943. She appeared in several films that Jessel produced, the last of which was filmed in 1951. She died of lung cancer at the age of 44.

Patricia Medina (1919-2012) had a longer acting career, a longer marriage, and a longer life. She appeared in over 50 movies and television series, and then toured with her husband, Joseph Cotten, to whom she was married from 1960 until his death in 1994. She is now buried beside him in Petersburg, Virginia.
