Poor man's Maureen O'Hara. Even that nickname was first given to Miss O'Hara.

6 husbands. I guess she had trouble in that department.

R7, the first 4 marriages all lasted just a few years each and the last two husbands died on her. I'd feel sorry for her if she weren't a freeper (wiki said she was in favor of mandatory school prayer)

Rounda Phlegming we called her at Paramount.
I never understood how the cooch stayed all Brillo when the topper was flame.
Did you know she sang?
Neither did I, and I have the album. (Well, it was a gift.)

Rhonda's penultimate husband was Ted Mann of Mann Theatres, who famously changed Graumann's Chinese Theatre to Mann's Chinese Theatre. Together they founded the Rhonda Fleming Mann Clinic for Comprehensive Care for Women with Cancer and the Rhonda Fleming Mann Resource Center, both at UCLA.

Rhonda Fleming must have been nondescript; we have talked about her at all in DataLounge.
Wiki says she was a Presbyterian evangelist with a nondescript name that was changed by that creepy svengali who took over the lives of Doug, Dack, Nick, Rock, Chad, Guy, Tab, Troy and Yale. She appeared in 50 nondescript movies of which I've seen two.

The depressing thing about the nondescript Marilyn Louis ("Rhonda Fleming"), nondescript Arlene Dahl and the nondescript Virginia Mayo is the strong probability that they were only hired because fellated the penises of Darryl Zanuck, Harry Cohn, Spyros Skouras and Samuel Goldfish ("Samuel Goldwyn")

She was in some good movies - The Spiral Staircase, Hitchcock's Spellbound, Home Before Dark, the noir classic Out of the Past, While the City Sleeps, Slightly Scarlet....

Rhonda Fleming was signed to a contract with David O. Selznick, but with David O obsessed with making Jennifer Jones a star, Rhonda departed and spent most of her career freelancing. Without a major studio to ensure A-picture leading lady success, Rhonda mostly languished in B-pictures, where the attraction was not her thespian skills, but her "Queen of Technicolor" beauty.

Ah, R29, I'm showing my bias.
I have this notion that most 'noir classics' are about gangsters. Billy Wilder may have made some noir films but most noir movies are B-grade movies. I think most of Fritz Lang's American stuff is B-grade.
So that's why I've avoided 'Out of the Past', 'While the City Sleeps', and 'Slightly Scarlet'. I haven't yet seen Jean Simmons' 'Home Before Dark' but will seek it out. I have, of course, enjoyed Hitchcock's 'Spellbound' and 'Spiral Staircase' but have completely forgotten the person that this thread celebrates.
P.S. My post at R22 mentions how I attempted to find another thread on Datalounge devoted to this performer— but I couldn't find one!

She developed wonk face via plastic surgery, along with a too-small nose.

I've realized why some of these old celebs have such bad nose jobs in their old age (that they didn't have in their prime). They try to combat the nose growth of age and overdo it with the surgery. Joey can't afford a plastic surgery addiction, so she has to make do with a bigger, old age nose.

She isn't the poor man's Lana Turner, she was the poor man's Maureen O' Hara.
She never got top billing. She was always subordinate to the male star who had the job of carrying the picture.

You've heard of a facelift where someone was pulled too tight? If the pull wasn't even on both sides of the face, you get wonk face.
